Re: Usual waiting times for procedures

Robette, can you tell me the symptoms. I have IPMNs in the uncinate area and have been having pain in right hand side of my abdomen. Recently had catscan and am awaiting results. Strange that these are the pains which first took me to dr. and which led to the diagnosis of IPMN. They have come back w...

Re: waiting for diagnosis

Hello all I'm here again. Have a follow up MRI on Wednesday at {name removed - moderator}. The lovely consultant has resigned. I received a letter a couple of months ago telling me I had been referred back to {name removed - moderator}, this despite all the mistakes made there AND furthermore saying...

Re: waiting for diagnosis

You are such a lovely lot, not fair bloody PC came into your lives, but what is fair? Mike already take omeprazole, missed programme Radio four about it (didn't seem as if Dr.Porter was recommending it) but I will try and do a catch up and in any event I haven't had side effects. Hopefully, as you s...

Re: waiting for diagnosis

Met with the consultant on Friday, what a lovely very human, personable man and yes, he is back at work, amazing how headline writers are not interested if no scandal is found but I for one am very glad he was there for me. The news is that it is indeed an IPMN and to distill all that was said, if I...

Re: waiting for diagnosis

Very, very nervous. Tomorrow I go to Birmingham to formally get results of endoscopic ultrasound and biopsy. Of course I had the copy of the letter with results and thank goodness for Diane at PC UK for interpreting some of the language. The choice it seems is between wait and see and pancreaticoduo...

Re: My Mam

Your loss is devastating and you will grieve but from your story I can see you had a wonderful mother who has made you strong and so caring and you must have a wealth of happy and fun memories. Take care, pamper yourself and live a good life, that will be her reward for all she has given.

Re: Thanx Very Much Coronation Street ....

I did watch last night's episode and I have to admit to supporting VOLUNTARY euthanasia. My brother died in August 2012 suffering PC. My sister died some years ago from bowel cancer, my Aunt from lung cancer and I am afraid I did not see the often stated 'palliative care removing extreme pain" for a...

Re: waiting for diagnosis

I feel such a fraud, I spoke to the specialist nurse late this afternoon and the results showed no cancer cells but mucinous substance in cysts. Obviously I am delighted, I am also aware that these will need to be monitored. I spoke to the nurse about the pain, discomfort and fatigue, she said she w...

Re: Feeling Low and Wondering What Next

So tied up with my own problematic diagnosis problems, not thought to look at anyone elses post, now read yours makes my problems pale into insignificance. I really feel for you - what a nightmare. I hope you can now find time to look after yourself before having to tackle all the fall-out that is i...

Re: waiting for diagnosis

What a rollercoaster. First the confusion and fear of the first phone call and subsequent calls from first specialist nurse and GP. From them being so sorry for my probable diagnosis to "normal for a woman of my age" and then GP telling me he "doesn't understand why I have been referred for an endos...
