Re: Is this normal ?

Hi alice yes unfortunately it's quite common. Took us 3 weeks just to see an oncologist for my step dad and that was private! for a disease like PC that's ridiculous! Can't believe they said not to worry about eating! that's the most importnat thing! sounds like you're getting on top of that so well...

Re: Results Day

hi morwenna i hope you at least feel a little less apprehensive now you know what your dealing with...the good news is that it's not spread to other parts of the body.
