UHCW Support Group
Monday, 3rd April 2017
This recently established support group is run by the Urology Dept of UHCW, Walsgrave. Meetings are organised by Mandinika (Mandy) Muzondo, Cancer Nurse Specialist.
Meetings are held every 2 months on the first Monday of the month at 5pm. Meetings are in the Faith Centre on the Ground Floor of the Walgrave Hospital.
This most recent meeting was well attended and took place on Monday 3rd April. The delicate topic under discussion was continence! For many men this is a temporary problem following radical treatment. Unfortunately some men have longer term problems.There was a thorough review of all the pads and products available, together with a new appliance to help stimulate pelvic floor development. Apparently this device has had singular success with significant improvements in over 70% of men. For more details, contact Mandinika.
As usual the atmosphere was informal and there was ample time to chat over refreshments.
All welcome. If you would like more details, including regular invitations, please get in touch with Mandinika on Mandinika.Muzondo@uhcw.nhs.uk.
The next meeing is on Monday 5th June.
We are delighted to be able to resume PSA testing now that the COVID-19 restrictions have been eased. The First one is on September 18th, with the Rokeby Lions in Rugby. We continue on October 2nd at St Finbarrs. See Coming Events for more detail.
