Re: denial

Very sorry to hear about your loved one, lahug. I have replied because your post struck a very deep chord with me. I lost my mother to pancreatic cancer about 18 months ago. From the day of diagnosis until the day she died she was in complete denial about her condition. She never asked any questions...

Re: Message for Vicky

Oh bless you Vicky, I am so very sorry to hear of your husband's passing. I lost my mum just over a year ago to this most vicious of diseases - she lived a year after diagnosis but sadly was one of the ones who never improved with treatment or had any real quality of life. It was a year of false daw...

Re: The next stage of the rollercoaster!

Hello Juliana Nice to talk to you, and so glad you enjoyed your holiday so much, Gran Canaria is a favourite of ours for a bit of rest and relaxation! I've just read about the results of your scan which sounded very favourable and I'm sure that I will be the first of many on this website who will be...

Re: The next stage of the rollercoaster!

Dear Emma You must be feeling so positive now and i hope that your lovely holiday will stay fresh in your minds and give you the strength to get your dad onwards and upwards through his next round of treatment. I also know of a couple of people with tiny lesions on the liver which grew very slowly a...

Re: What next?

Dear Ellie It was so nice to read that you and Brian really enjoyed your break. I am a huge believer in adding life to days rather than days to life and you two have done exactly that. I must say Brian did incredibly well to get through all the flights/airports - most able bodied people find it a dr...

Re: Latest on Chris

Dear Trevor I've just read your post about Chris's progress and I wanted to tell you that the overriding impression I came away with is that you are both doing extremely well. After losing my first husband and then my mum to cancer, (mum had pancreatic), I have learned that equally important to any ...

Re: Depression, gum disease & pancreatic cancer

Hi Juliana My mum certainly had digestive problems long before she started having other symptoms (like the pain etc). We just always knew mum as having a dodgy bowel, don't give her too many peas, etc ....! However, I do remember in the year or two before diagnosis she was complaining more of wind a...

Depression, gum disease & pancreatic cancer

I lost my mum to this awful disease about five months ago and I'm sorry to see that there are quite a few others who have lost loved ones just recently. I know that you all have other things on your minds but I just wanted to ask if anyone else had noticed that their loved ones had become depressed ...

Re: A wonderful woman my mother has died.

Dear Millyjo I haven't been around for a while but I just wanted to say how sorry I was to hear about your mum. You reminded me very much of just under five months ago when we went through almost exactly the same with my mum. She was so horribly ill at the end, particularly so when her voice went ve...

Re: My mum!!!!!The love and strenght will alway be with us!

Hello Dora If only you knew how much everything you say hits home to me - and i am sure others here. During my mum's last few days her abdomen and legs just continued to swell yet her face and neck became thinner and thinner until we could hardly recognise her. She was unable to control her bladder ...

Re: Young Children

Dear Gill Children take cues from their parents and the other adults around them. You have always come across as very straightforward - honest and realistic whilst at the same time hopeful - but above all very practical. It sounds to me that your daughter has been watching your reactions very carefu...

Re: CHEMOTHERAPY

We hardly know each other Gill but please accept my very sincere condolences. I always followed your story with hope - your dear father did so incredibly well and nothing will ever take that away. He won so many battles and as I mentioned to you before my mum and dad were genuinely pleased to hear o...

Re: CHEMOTHERAPY

Hello Gill, I just thought I would see how things were, been thinking about you today. It is good that your father is calm and peaceful, that is testament to the love that he is surrounded with. You have reminded me a lot of how my dad was with my mum throughout her illness, it is hard to put into w...

Re: CHEMOTHERAPY

Dear Gill Just signed in and I am so very sorry to hear about your brave dad. Please don't think you have failed him, your sheer determination and dedication to get him the right help and treatment throughout the good times and bad has been absolutely faultless. The decision to take my mum into the ...
