Re: This cruel disease

Another week successfully negotiated. A week that included another dose of chemotherapy and an appointment with an Oncologist. Another week where I once again was filled with such pride for the fierce independence and determination that my daughter displays in the face of such a daunting situation. ...

Thank you for the encouragement Veema. It really does help to read friendly and supportive words from people that have been through this same awful situation.

Re: This cruel disease

Another one done. Next Friday is a rest week. My daughter is glad of that break as it is the school holidays. She's still doing great, looks well, and incredibly, she eats without Creon at times still with no ill effects. I find all of this incredibly difficult much of the time, especially when alon...

Re: This cruel disease

Another Friday gone. Another chemotherapy dose applied. Four down, two to go before the all important first progress scan. My daughter is still extremely well. Remarkably, I witnessed her eating the best part of a Burger King Whopper without the aid of any Creon yesterday. No problems resulted from ...

Re: This cruel disease

Hi Jenny I read your post about your Father. We seem to be having very similar experiences with our loved ones. Don't give up hope. I read a truly inspirational story from a Cancer specialist recently who had a message for stage IV pancreatic cancer patients. His message was to not ever give up hope...

Re: This cruel disease

Thank you all for the good wishes. Three sessions down. We're minus our hair and plus a wig now. But no other symptoms of note and the troublesome diahorea seemingly under control thanks to a positive result for helicobacter pylori followed by a good long dose of antibiotics. No more noticeable weig...

Re: This cruel disease

A bit of an update. We have seen the Consultant again today. All blood results are fine now so chemotherapy starts again on Friday. If we don't have to pause again, that takes us up to 1st June for the sixth dose. Then we fret about the results of the next scan until we can see the doctor again to f...

Re: This cruel disease

Thank you all for the very kind words and links. Yesterday was a down day on the oft-mentioned roller coaster. No chemotherapy possible due to lowered neutrophils, making a further dose too risky. That should have been the third round of an initial six. My daughter was distraught and her flood of te...

This cruel disease

Thank you for activating my account, and for allowing me to join the forum. It goes without saying that I wish that I did not have to seek it out in the first place. Before I explain why I am here, I would just like to say this. You are warriors and heroes, every one of you. The patients, the famili...
