Caring for a loved one on chemo when pregnant

Hi all,

Does anyone have an experience of caring for their loved one in early pregnancy?

I am in my first trimester. My mum has pancreatic cancer with liver mets and is about to start on Gem-Abraxane. I am her carer.

Are there any precautions I need to be aware of?

Thank you so much x

Celiac plexus block

Hello all,

My mother has cancer in the tail of her pancreas with multiple liver metastasis. We were offered a celiac plexus block procedure to relieve pain.

Has anyone with cancer in the pancreatic tail had the procedure, and was it helpful?

Thank you so much! xx

She was determined to beat this cruel illness and she gave us all hope. RIP Erica, I've only met you once, and I thought of you every single day - you'll be missed xx
