Re: Pancreatic cancer or bile duct cancer?

Received feedback from the MDT meeting this afternoon. Dave is to be referred to an oncologist at our local centre in Cardiff for chemotherapy. It was explained that he could go to Birmingham for this but we had discussed this option with the consultant last week. The nurse also said that it was unu...

Re: Pancreatic cancer or bile duct cancer?

Thank you MSH, Good to know you are now symptom free. I sincerely hope Dave will be well enough to start some sort of treatment. He was hospitalised until 2 weeks ago, during which time he has lost over 5 stone in weight and has no appetite at all. He never feels hungry and says he feels full after ...

Re: Pancreatic cancer or bile duct cancer?

Thank you Margery for your good wishes. Unfortunately, the hospital called on tuesday to say that Dave's case was to be discussed in the MDT meeting on thursday afternoon so his appointment has been postponed until next thursday. Makes sense and hopefully we should have a treatment plan. Best wishes...

Re: A Mother in a Million

Hello to you all but particularly to Steve and Nia, I have recently joined the carers group as my husband has now been diagnosed with PC. We live in the S Wales valley area and I would be interested to know about your experiences of being diagnosed as my husband's care seems to be a catalogue of err...

Re: Pancreatic cancer or bile duct cancer?

Hi all, Thank you for replying to my posts and for the good wishes. I now find myself drawn to this site not only to research the experiences of others but as a means of support for myself. I can relate to so many of the comments I've read. I too feel very alone and feel that we have been cheated ou...

Re: Pancreatic cancer or bile duct cancer?

Thank you both for your replies. My husband's appointment for the scans in Birmingham is tomorrow. I'm rather worried as he will be sedated for the endoscopic ultrasound and the last time he had this procedure he slept for about 6 hours afterwards. As we live more than 2 hours away from Birmingham I...

Pancreatic cancer or bile duct cancer?

My husband was admitted to hospital in early April with jaundice thought at first to be an infection or a gall stone. Within a week he was transferred to a more specialist hospital to have a gall bladder drain, after an ERCP failed due to obstruction in the bile duct and his bilirubin was 500. He we...
