Re: Just diagnosed

Hi Theresa My Daughter is in the same boat as you. She is just 35 years of age. She was diagnosed with stage IV in March this year. The primary tumour on her pancreas was about 3cm x 3cm. There were two small patches of the same cancer on her liver and several small nodules dotted around deeper in h...

I think the best and most honest way to answer the first part of your question is that I don't stay strong. I cry sometimes. I cry tears for my Mum on certain days ...

Re: This cruel disease

An update for anyone following this thread. In late August we had the really good news of further shrinkage of the primary tumour on my Daughter's pancreas as well as the virtual disappearance of the disease from her liver. Today we had even better news! There has been further 'significant reduction...

Re: Dealing With The Loss

Similar to you, I did not expect to lose my Mum. She was only in her 50's and was generally a well person. She went through a spell of chest infections during the winter, the last of which saw her hospitalised for intravenous antibiotics and some planned rehab as she had become painfully thin in a v...

Re: Dealing With The Loss

Well, I also lost my Dad to cancer in a time that is to me quite recently (Almost 3 years ago now but it is still hard to not have him around). I'm a little bit more that twice your age, but I was not not much older than you are now when I lost my Mum to lung cancer. She has been gone for almost 20 ...

Re: My mum - Stage 4 PC with liver mets

I hope your Mum gets the good news she deserves Dee. My daughter is on the same treatment. She also lost her hair and had some very mild neuropathy on occasion. She too had very mild nausea from time to time. But like your mum she has remained positive and determined and if you didn't know her you w...

Re: This cruel disease

Here we are again a month later. I hope those of you that were awaiting news of scans had positive news and that those of you with loved ones fighting this awful disease are staying strong as individuals and as family units. So, fast forward one month and we're still a family of four, plus our four ...

Re: This cruel disease

Thank you for the information Toodotty. Also thank you to you too Jeni. This forum is a great place to come to and is one my favourite places to visit when I'm feeling a bit lost and overwhelmed. I'm not in the least bit superstitious, although I haven't posted here for a while for fear of jinxing t...
