Re: coping - or just

I am sure many of you will understand the difficult emotions of living with someone with pancreatic cancer. A short summary - my husband (aged 44) was diagnosed in A...

Hi Lem, My husband was 'out of it' on the morphine, talking rubbish and doing strange things, this was due to the morphine (side effects), he also had severe mood swings - again a side effect. I had a battle with the doctors about this (I am a nurse myself and so knew it was the side effects, but do...
