I will not know for some time if this is due to my having been given oxygen treatment until trial results are published.”
2. I simply did not have a life worth living.
“I simply had no quality of life. 3 weeks out of 4 I would throw up, followed by days of non-stop diarrhoea. I would become dehydrated – had to be put on a drip.

I joined Dignitas, as I simply did not have a life worth living..”

“I know that if I pig out on fatty food I will suffer for it!! I at least have control now! And I know what is causing the problem which has taken away the fear of a possible recurrence of the cancer. It was very helpful to me to know the cause of my diarrhoea and learn how to manage it.
