Re: My mum - Stage 4 PC with liver mets

Hi Dee, We have had amazing news. The tumour on the Pancreas has shrunk so it is barely visible on the scan and the tumours in her liver have halved in size and some have even shrunk completely. We were given the option of coming off the Abraxane but Mum decided to continue with the dual Gemcitabine...

Re: loosing hope

Hi Charlotte, My Mum (72) was diagnosed with inoperable PC which has spread to her liver in September. It was the most horrific day of my life so far. It was a complete shock, Mum has never smoked always been very fit and healthy and it came out of the blue. I asked her to go to the docs as she said...

Re: My mum - Stage 4 PC with liver mets

Mum is finally over the virus after a brief stay in hospital. We are back on the chemo, dose 2 last week and dose 3 booked for Thursday. She is still battling the nausea which is making her feel weak. She is still eating every meal which is a struggle when she feels so sick. Just hoping for the naus...

Re: My mum - Stage 4 PC with liver mets

Hi Erika, Thanks for your kind words. I hope it gets better, she is still so poorly with the virus. I hope that like you she finds some food that she fancies as she is really struggling at the moment. Just hoping she will be well enough to continue with her chemo. Best of luck with your treatment.

Re: My mum - Stage 4 PC with liver mets

Thank you for your ideas, it is greatly appreciated. I will certainly try the Milk Thistle. Just hoping that she can get over the virus so we know what is side effects of the chemo and try and deal with those.

Re: My mum - Stage 4 PC with liver mets

Does anyone have any experience of an increased sense of smell? Mum is becoming increasingly nauseous but has a heightened sense of smell which is making the sickness worse. She had the first chemo on Thursday but has picked up a virus (we believe on Wednesday) which is making her feel worse. If we ...

Re: My mum - Stage 4 PC with liver mets

Thank you for your reply. Mum starts her chemo today at Guys. It is all very nerve wracking but we are trying to be positive. Mum has opted for Cold Cap to try and retain her hair and we are just keeping everything crossed that the side effects are manageable. I wish everyone on this thread very bes...

We are a month post diagnosis and we are all still in shock and devastated. She is not very symptomatic but feels nauseous almost constantly and has some pain which ...
