Re: My Mum

Hi LST, I'm so sorry that this truly horrendous disease took your lovely Mum away from you. People just don't understand how the death of a loved one can affect you, and particularly when the death is much quicker that expected, and the passing so traumatic. The firsts are always terrible first Chri...

Re: Newly diagnosed with Stage 3 locally advanced PC

Hi ValJean, Sorry can't help with that specifically, but noticed in your previous post that you were suffering discomfort. Many people including my husband's pain was reduced due to shrinkage of the tumor by chemotherapy. This has to be offset by the reaction that the individual has from the treatme...

Hi Robette, Thanks for letting us know how well you are doing, its always good to get some good news although I am not sure you would feel having your gallbladder removed was actually good news, but it could have been much worse news. Please let us know your results later on in the year, sending lov...
