Re: My 41 years old husband has inoperable pancreatic cancer

Susanna I'm so sorry to read about all that you are going through - it is terribly hard. I would like to echo what others have said about taking all the support that is offered to you and also make use of the nurses here (I can see that you already have) - they were hugely supportive to me when I ne...

Re: BILLIARY SEPSIS

Pete was on Co-Amoxiclav too but only for a week after he left hospital. But the infection came back and I would push to stay on it for much longer.

Heartbroken

Pete, my wonderful husband and father to our 5 amazing children died two weeks ago today on 24th August. He was diagnosed on 12th June, just over 10 weeks earlier. He was 54. He finally succumbed to an infection which was resistant to most antibiotics and by the time he was clear of infection, the c...

Re: Husband newly diagnosed

Thank you everyone for your anniversary wishes. I did take in some treats last night ... but he was fast asleep!! When he woke he wasn't hungry or thirsty either but we sat out in the sun for an hour and celebrated anyway. Cathy, he had been on the injections for a couple of weeks already and the cl...

Re: First Post on here

It must be so hard for you being so far away from her, particularly as you can't get answers to the questions you have but I'm glad you have posted your story. I am new to the forum too but lurked for a while. Have you been able to speak to her oncologist by phone? I don't know much about these thin...

Re: Husband newly diagnosed

Thank you Cathy - you are right that the support here is amazing. And I hope that you are doing OK too. Steve, did you find anything out about the oral anticoagulant? I haven't been able to post for a few days as it's been the worst week of our lives. Pete came out on Sunday but on Tuesday suddenly ...

Re: Husband newly diagnosed

Thank you wacky - it's horrendous isn't it? Just heard that he can come home though and that bringing him back in last night was probably an overreaction. I'm actually more concerned that they tried to give him a double dose of Clexane because they'd forgotten to record the first one. Steve, I've tr...

Re: Husband newly diagnosed

Steve, Thank you so much - I have sent your message to Pete this morning as it seems so hopeful. I was terrified all night that I was going to get a call from the hospital and was on the point of ringing the ward several times. Pete has already texted me though to set my mind at rest. I am annoyed t...

Re: How long to get definite diagnosis

Hi Fiona, We're a bit behind you - diagnosed on 12th June and due to start the same chemo regime as you this week. That will no longer happen as Pete is currently in hospital with an infection and now has a blood clot in his lung in addition to the one he already had in his leg. But I know exactly w...

Re: Husband newly diagnosed

Thank you so much all of you. I'm glad to say he has just been discharged (at 9pm!) as the scan was delayed until late afternoon. But thankfully the stent he had put in 3 weeks ago is not blocked as we had feared and is draining properly. The main problem now is that after 3 days of immobility his l...

Husband newly diagnosed

Hello, A month ago today my husband was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer that has spread to his liver. He was told he had months rather than years. He is 54 and I am 51 - we thought we had another 20 or 30 years. We have five children, one just finished uni, 2 at uni and twins about to start in Sept...
