Re: Steve Didn't Make Christmas

Diane I'm so sorry and you and the family are in my thoughts and prayers. Can I just say that your wonderful post, whilst terribly sad, gave me a sense of peace and hope - strange as that may sound. What a lovely person you are to still be thinking of others on the forum at this awful time. Much lov...

Re: MY MUM

Hi there I'm so sorry that your Mum is suffering so much, emotional pain often manifests itself in physical problems but that doesn't make them any less real. I'm not a doctor either but what I know of Creon is that it is a synthetic attempt to replace enzymes if the pancreas isn't making them. Many...

Re: MY MUM

Hi

I'm so sorry to hear that the bbq didn't go as planned and that your Mum is in so much pain.

I really hope the enzymes help your Mum and that she has more good days so that you can share that precious time with her and build up some wonderful memories.

Love

Re: update on mum

Oh Louie I'm so sorry that your Mum had such a bad night. Fentynl can cause severe side effects and "drugs.com" offers the following advice: "Seek medical attention right away if any of these SEVERE side effects occur when using Fentanyl: Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; difficulty breathing;...

Re: MY MUM

Hi there Don't ever apologise for rambling/venting/asking/informing - that's what the boards are for! We all stick together here and help as much as we can when we can. Ukrain is an anticancer drug based on the extract of the common weed, greater celandine (Chelidonium majus L.). This plant contains...

Re: Another 'Mum' falls victim

Hi Mistipop You're not weak at all. It just goes to show how stongly you feel for your Mum. We all find it tremendously difficult but we cope - sometimes it's a struggle but we don't really have any other alternative! As and when you are ready to ask questions, do, but don't push yourself too quickl...

Re: Tumor Markers

Hi Rachel The tumor markers are proteins in the blood which are indicative of having a tumour but a raised count can also be caused by other issues, such as inflamation or pancreatitis. Some people (including Ted) find that the markers run very closely with their scans and they can be used as an ind...

Re: So we went to see Ted's consultant today....

Thank you all...It was devestating news yesterday but today we are able to start to bounce back. We've decided that we are going to treat this as we have done all along: namely ignoring the dratted thing so far as possible! After all, it might eventually get bored and just go away!!! Seriously, as m...

So we went to see Ted's consultant today....

The news isn't good. His tumour markers are higher than they have ever been. Ted's been having some problems eating: intermittent pain, nausea, gagging on food, bloating etc. The consultant thinks this may be due to the progression of his cancer, even though none of the symptoms are consistent. The ...

Re: Steve's Cancer has Spread to his Liver

Hi Diane Just wanted to add my voice to the other well-wishers. Obviously You're torn between wanting him to be with us and not wanting him to suffer...a feeling I know only too well! Whenever Ted has had to make a decision about chemo I've always stepped back and said that because I don't feel the ...
