Dehumidifier, yes or no?

Hi, my dad has had gastro cancer for around 18 months now and has undergone all his chemo and a gastrectomy. He has recently been diagnosed with gall bladder cancer as well.

I was wondering if a dehumidifier would be beneficial to him and if it would be advised to get one for him. Thank you 

  • Hi HER_girl and welcome to Cancer Chat.

    I'm sorry to hear your dad has been diagnosed with gall bladder cancer just 18 months after his gastro cancer diagnosis. This must be a very difficult time for you all.

    Unfortunately I can't answer your question about the dehumidifier but we do have a very knowledgeable and friendly team of cancer nurses that may be able to help, so if you'd like to get their thoughts on this, you can contact them on 0808 800 4040, Monday - Friday between 9a.m - 5p.m.

    Hopefully it won't be long until you will hear back from some of our members who may have invested in a dehumidifier on their cancer journeys as well.

    Kind regards,
