Re: Mum's diagnosis

My Dad had ascites and also looked pregnant. He had it drained once via an ascetic tap, done at our local hospital. He went to X-ray where they inserted a syringe into his abdomen and connected it to a drainage bag. Then he was taken up to a ward to allow the fluid to drain off. He was there from 9....

Re: Tumour size

Sorry to let you forum friends know that my wonderful Dad died early this morning. Even though it's 7 months since he was diagnosed we did not expect the end to be so sudden. He was discharged from hospital after one night without diagnosis and subsequently saw a palliative care doctor who thought t...

Re: Creon 40,000 units

Hi Pete My Dad was unable to get 40,000 and this is what Dianne (one of the nurses) wrote recently - "I am sure you are aware we try not to intervene in your forum but we do moderate it, so I thought it might be a good time to update on the Creon. So for the Creon, currently 40,000 unit capsules may...

Re: ITS BEEN A WHILE--THE LOVE OF MY LIFE HAS CANCER

This is what one of the nurses wrote about Creon on another thread:- "The normal pancreas produces up to 720,000 units of enzymes (lipase - one of the enzymes, but also the others as well), and that we need about 10% minimum of this to digest a meal properly (this is a normal meal! ) = 72,000 units ...

Re: Tumour size

Dad was admitted to hospital again yesterday. He was tremoring and saw a diabetic nurse and G.P. who couldn't find any cause so sent him to A&E. The hospital is planning to do blood tests and an X-ray to check for infection. Boy, this disease is relentless. Best wishes to all of you fighting it.

Re: Tumour size

Some good news from the oncology review - the Consultant has decided that after the steroids Dad is fit enough for a second round of chemo, which will start next week. The hospital were also able to provide some drainage bags as they'd just had a delivery. Last week when they didn't have any bags, t...

Re: Tumour size

Thank you Dianne. The next prescription challenge is getting the drainage bags. Dad was discharged from hospital with one and was told the District Nurses should drain the ascites daily until the amount of fluid is less than 250 mls / day. The District Nurses didn't have any bags but managed to get ...
