Re: Mum's diagnosis

I only learned of the creon tablets on here, I will ask my mum to ask about them if her weight is still coming down next week. I do hope your mum gets to see the graduation and wedding next year!

First Post on here

This is my first post on here, I have lurked around a bit trying to get bits of information here and there since my mum was diagnosed and finally plucked up the courage to tell my story. My mum is almost 72 and was only diagnosed when a routine blood test back in February showed some abnormal liver ...
