Re: Dad Advanced T4N1 help?

Hi Mo

He is 57.

We have called up the NHS and said we want faster appointments. They said they will let us know if there any cancellations. Very frustrating!

I have also requested my notes now so as soon as I get them I'll send them off. I'll keep you all posted and if anyone knows of any more places I can try please let me know xx

Keep on phoning Stacey. And be terribly polite but persistent. The water dripping on a stone method usually pays off in the end.

57 is no age at all. Is he otherwise healthy ? No heart problems or anything ?

Love Mo

Hello Stacey,

Thank you for your posts on the forums, and as others have pointed out, not a place you would wish to be. However, I see that you have already had some great support from the others who have found themselves also on here. Thank you to everybody who has replied to Stacey so far.

I apologise that we have not responded prior to this Stacey, due to staff leave.

I am very sorry to hear that your dad has recently been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and it is good that he has you advocating for him, and information finding, which can be a big thing to face.

I note that others have posted our details on here also, so please do feel free should you wish to contact us. Our details are below.

Kind regards,
Jeni.
