Re: Mum just been diagnosed with PC

I am so sorry. You are all in shock, no doubt and in an isolated place right now. I recognise completely how you are feeling. It is horrible. My family were all wonderful when we were going through this. We all reacted with different emotions at different times but most importantly we were all there...

Re: What lies ahead

Oh Mags, I am so sorry that you are going through this on your own. As someone who lost my husband to pancreatic cancer in August 16, I know how exhausting it is to care for someone who is terminally ill. The grieving process after you have lost someone you love is hard enough to cope with, never mi...

Re: My Journey So Far

I am so very sorry. Mark was inspiring and gave us all hope as well as wonderful up to date, relevant information. He seemed invincible. He was quite clearly an exceptional person. Thank you so much for letting us know.

Re: White Blood Cell Count Low - advice for a newbie?

I'm sorry to hear about the delay in treatment. I know how worrying that can be, especially at this early stage. My husband had the same problem and the hospital decided to send us home with Lenograstim injections after each subsequent Folforinox treatment. This involved injections once a day for th...

Re: So far so good!

Paige, Thank you so much for taking the time to let everyone know about your Dad at such a difficult time. I don't post often, but I have followed Steve's inspirational story since I joined the forum last April. A quote I read the other day summed up for me Steve's wonderful positivity in dealing wi...

Re: From inoperable to Whipple

Thank you. I had certainly read that some surgeons were happier to operate than others, but this article is fascinating and very relevant to our situation. I shall raise it with the oncologist on Monday week. Best wishes. Mary

Re: From inoperable to Whipple

Thank you so much for sharing this. My husband was diagnosed with locally advanced inoperable cancer, with the tumour wrapped around the portal vein, 10 months ago. 12 sessions of Folforinox brought a "moderate" reduction and he has now undergone 19 of 28 sessions of chemo radiotherapy. He is tired,...

Re: Mum's diagnosis

Sue, I am so very sad for you. Please accept my condolences. I hope you have good support at this difficult time - you deserve it after the support you have given to so many people on this forum. You seem to have had a great bond with your Mum, which is very special and something to treasure for ever.

Re: New funding for pancreatic research

Thanks all for your replies. I take the point about needing more investment. Let's hope this awareness month will bring some big donors to the fore quickly. Well, number 12 session of Folforinox is done! I have followed many of the stories on this site and would like to thank you all for the wealth ...

New funding for pancreatic research

Good evening all, Well, in common with many others, it has taken me a while to finally post. My husband was diagnosed in April with locally advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma after several missed opportunities (grr!) but as many of you have experienced this, I don't need to expand any further. As so...
