My Mom was admitted for her biopsy yesterday prior to be scheduled for Chemo. She has Stage 4(a) PC, location is the body of the pancreas with varicose invasion (which I assume means its in the blood stream). Yesterday they spent 30 minutes trying to take blood samples from 5 different sites but couldn't. I am told by the medics in my family that its because her veins are collapsing as a result of poor circulation. Has anyone else experienced this problem and if so, can you advise how it was dealt with. Many thanks.
