Re: my heart is broken my dad has gone x

So, I haven't been back to this site since Dec. It's not that I don't care about all the other people on here but I guess I have tried to resume some sort of normality to my life...except that it doesn't seem to happen like you think it would. Mum and I still have tears especially when we hear a son...

Re: my heart is broken my dad has gone x

It's been a while since I have been on here. It's so difficult to read what others are going through when I know exactly how they are feeling. We had dad's funeral which was beautiful and so many people came to say good bye. I managed to say some words about dad and I was so proud I got through it a...

Re: The beginning of a hard journey

Really sorry to hear of your dad. I found this forum a great help whilst my dad was going through his illness. His also spread to his liver. It was a year after the first scan he had at which they said he had a small cyst that they diagnosed pc. I still feel guilty that we didn't ask for a second op...

Re: my heart is broken my dad has gone x

Sorry I stayed away for a few days. Didn't know what to say. It's been a week now and it's seemed a long week. It's been quite tough when the little things happen they remind me of dad. I'm trying to stay strong for mum more than anything. It was awful when we had a phone call for them to arrange fo...

Re: Need some advice if possible !

So today is the start of pancreatic cancer awareness month and the irony is right there. My heart was broken today when at 1pm my dear lovely pops fell asleep. It was the most peaceful time and we were all with him right to the end. We cared for him at home which was the toughest thing I have ever h...

Re: Need some advice if possible !

I didn't mean to upset anyone I'm so sorry. It's just so hard knowing what happens next and the support on here has been so lovely and has helped me massively. We are going to have a night sitter come in soon as I think it's not much longer now. Thank you to everyone. Xx Big hugs to you all X X

Re: Need some advice if possible !

The nurse came in this morning and they are coming back later to put a morphine driver in so that dad can have medication put in automatically. Is this the last stage for him now? Can any one help me with any advice at all?

Re: Need some advice if possible !

Dad is much the same still. 4 weeks now since he had any food. Still extremely sleepy and is quite confused. His speech is very poor but he still knows exactly what he wants. Heart breaking just watching and waiting now. Sounds heartless but I hope it's not too long. We have said all we need to say ...

Re: Need some advice if possible !

Remarkably pops is still with us! He now hasn't eaten for 3 weeks and 4 days and fluid has been minimal....not even a cup per day. He is terribly thin and has slept virtually continuously for 5 days now. Last nite was extremely emotional. I gave him a cuddle and put my head next to his and he put hi...

Re: Need some advice if possible !

Thank you to everyone that takes time to read my updates. I just want to share what is happening in my life to let other people know that what they are going through is what I am also going through. I don't feel alone any more as others seem to concur with the thoughts I have and the feelings and em...

Re: Need some advice if possible !

So the next update is that dad now hasn't eaten anything for 3 weeks. He is still taking in fluids. His pain is increasing but the morphine is controlling it and they have now put this line in his arm so they can give a morphine top up as he is still having morphine orally at the moment. His speech ...
