Re: Life expectancy for Stage IV

Good morning Vasil I am very sorry to hear of your Dad's diagnosis, there is no doubt pancreatic cancer is a horrible, nasty disease. I am going to be brutally honest in my response because I really think you need to prepare yourself. It's very unlikely that your Dad would be able to tolerate endles...

Re: Hair loss with abraxane

Hello Marta So sorry you find yourself on this forum. Good luck with chemo and go kick PC where the sun doesn't shine. My hubby had folfirinox initially which did nothing to his hair but after just 2 sessions for gem/abraxane started to lose it very quickly. I am not sure if abraxane alone causes ha...

Re: My Mum

Of course you can ask! I love to talk about my husband...it keeps his memory alive and that for me is just so important. Long story short, he was put on 12 cycles of Folfirinox which is the alternative to Gemcitibane/Abraxane. I don't know how oncologists decide which regime to start first but I thi...

Re: This cruel disease

Dear Keith

Fantastic to hear Kerry is stuffing her face. That for me says it all.

Fingers and toes crossed that her next scan brings equally fantastic results.

I might not post much anymore but I still come on and follow everyone's stories. I just can't help it.

Love Proud Wife x

Re: Concerned husband

Hello Saxon I'm so sorry to hear of the pain your wife is suffering. I don't normally post any more but I always found a Friday evening ahead of a long weekend a very lonely place when my hubby was suffering. Therefore, I'd like to share our experience... Whilst I am no doctor, I'm a little surprise...

Hope you are feeling better now Theresa. You are entitled to have a bit of depression ...hopefully your GP has been able to help although meds will take a few weeks to kick in.
