Re: Ted 29.8.46 - 9.4.12

All the supermarkets sell some form of anti-diarrhoea stuff--- about 98p for 6 tablets

Employment discrimination against cancer patients

I am doing some research into discrimination against cancer patients as and when they are able to return to work, if they want to. I am self-employed so I may not have noticed this so much personally. I have contacted a number of relevant university departments in England and Scotland doing such res...

Re: Advice and Information on possible Whipples

"I like - walking, swimming, sex, playing squash and badminton, and yes - eating and drinking! "

See my post under Trevor F at http://forum.pancreaticcancer.org.uk/vi ... ?f=2&t=733.
