Re: Devastated

Thank you everyone, it's so shocking and feels so unreal yet our home feels so empty without him!!! He fought it until the very end and he done me proud how he managed to live each day with the knowledge that this cancer would take him way to soon. Love you Andrew, missing you so much xxx

Re: My husbands pancreatic cancer situation

Has your husband been put on MST morphine sustained release? My husband was given that whilst in hospital and it's controlled his pain, he has cut back on the tramadol and oramorph. He takes it twice a day 12 hours apart.

Re: Helicobacter Pyrori & Pancreatic Can

My husband was tested positive for h pylori and treated with triple therapy anti biopics, however the pains remained and worsened, he has since been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, I wonder if there is a connection that this lead to cancer.

Re: Devastated

Hi Sooty

I read that your husband had a stent fitted through the rib cage? Was the blockage in the common bile duct or the bile ducts of the liver? They told my husband that they couldn't do it that way due to it being the tumors on the liver causing the blockage.

Re: Devastated

Hi Nicki It all taken place at our local general hospital, scans, blood tests, stent attempt. Our oncologist is based at [name removed - moderator] (south Wales) which is a general cancer hospital.
