Re: You've got to be kidding me...

Hi Maxine How awful for your Mum, what a 2 years she's had. I hope today's meeting goes as well as possible. As Didge says, sometimes tumours are converted from inoperable to operable after treatment. That was my husband's situation. And it's not uncommon for a second opinion to be more positive tha...

Re: Thoughts from the PC frontline

Dear Marmalade and PW Thank you so much for your messages, prayers and positive vibes. My natural inclination when things go awry in life is to clam up and hide away. But something told me this time that sharing would help me a lot. To be honest I felt the need to reach out to some very special peop...

Re: Thoughts from the PC frontline

Hi Jeni
Thanks very much for responding to my post and your very kind words which I hope I can live up to. I have the most wonderful husband who is so deserving of the very best support so I will try my damnedest (as do all the carers who visit this forum).

Re: Thoughts from the PC frontline

Dear Mo I'm so sorry that Peter is having to deal with pain and sickness, how miserable for him. Miserable for you too. Knowing and seeing that the love of your life is suffering is rubbish. I do hope it's not the progression that you fear and that Peter starts feeling better again. You and I are bo...

Re: Thoughts from the PC frontline

Well, after 2+ years on this journey, and having always been only too aware that the other shoe may drop at any time, I think that time may have come. Hubby's CA19-9 has risen to the scary height of 1600, having been just 50 something when it was last checked four months ago. His next scan has been ...

Re: What lies ahead

Dear Mags Welcome to the forum but I'm so sorry that you find yourself here. I'm sure you will find it a very caring and supportive place. I can't really help at all with your question of what lies ahead, as everyone is so different and it will depend on your own disease profile and how you respond ...

Re: 36 yo adv pancr cancer patient treated in France

Dear Stepuha What a month you've had. I'm so pleased that you can look back on some good times but the behaviour of your oncologist was downright rude and insensitive. And I'm sorry that Prof Nano was no help, and that all the French doctors disappear on their hols in August. You just don't need all...

Re: Thoughts from the PC frontline

Just had to post today to register my delight at the announcement that Abraxane will be available on NHS England. Well done PCUK and other interest groups for campaigning so effectively. This change is going to make a significant difference to the survival time and quality of many patients' lives. B...

Re: Carrying On

Dear Marmalade Thank you so much for your "very long" post. What you have achieved or set in motion in the almost year since Louis's death takes my breath away. I'm exhausted just reading about it. Do keeping writing here Marmalade! As you say, this forum acts as a beacon for those in the midst of h...

Re: Whipple imminent, mass in head of pancreas - is this still classified as cancer

Hi Smiley Welcome to the forum but I'm so sorry that you find yourself here. You've already had lots of good advice above. The main thing I can add at this point is a suggestion for you to get in touch with the wonderful helpline here at PCUK. I'm sure they will be able to help with those diagnostic...

Re: Hospital Diagnostics Review

Dear Marmalade Your thread might not be the most riveting, but drama here is not necessarily a good thing, whereas an initiative that sets out to improve things for patients and their carers is very much to be celebrated and applauded. Thank you so much Marmalade for fighting this particular battle,...
