Re: Whippleversary

I think it's really good that you've been offered adjuvant chemo, I can totally appreciate you are not looking forward to it but just in case there are an rogue cells lying dormant.

lovely to hear such positive news, keep it coming! xx

Re: Jane's story

Fabulous attitude Jane!

By the way, it's unlikely you will lose all of your hair on folfirinox, it should only thin a bit.

Have a great holiday! xx

Re: Metastatic adenocarcinoma

Hello Channers Welcome to you too. Many a time I had a quiet word with the hospital staff when I wanted to find out information for myself. Perhaps the next time your husband is having treatment, you would wander off for some fresh air and express your concerns? The fear of the unknown can be terrif...

Fabulous, idea Elaine!

Sending you and Peter all good wishes Mo. And Boo of course. Hope he's now been restored to his former glory after the tuna oil rub. xx

Re: Jane's story

Hello Jane Welcome. I'm only truly sorry you find yourself here. I must echo Veema and W&M's comments. I've actually just posted on Helen's thread about Folfirinox and holidays etc. Absolutely agree you must go on holiday! Anything you can do to help get yourself as fit as possible for chemo. Just m...

Re: IBS?

Hello Helen So sorry to hear your latest news. My hubby did really well on Folfirinox until his oncologist decided to give him a treatment break and then start him on Gem/abraxane. Perhaps he'd still be here if he continued with the Fox, no-one will ever know. My hubby chose to have cycles every 3 w...

Re: Thoughts from the PC frontline

Aaaah, I thought DG had misread my post but reading it properly, I'm the one who misread hers. I understand about being conservative but when faced with such a poor outlook for the majority, then what's the harm in trying something simple like a statin? If you don't try, you'll never know. Really pl...

Re: Thoughts from the PC frontline

Good to see you back here DG. My comment about lazy oncologist was only in relation to my hubby's oncologist who only did the very basic....proven by doing a biopsy 1 year after diagnosis. Bit late then when the disease was progressing don't you think xx

Re: Thoughts from the PC frontline

Thank you very much for this W&M. I remember when Statins hit the news. I asked hubby's lazy oncologist if it was worth putting him on them. Answer, I will read the article and get back to you. Never did. However, as a not so long ago diagnosed diabetic and after what happened to hubby, I obviously ...

Yes Mo. I have a problem. I can't seem to stop shoving food in my mouth.

Solution? Other than have my jaw wired?

Hope all's well your end. xxx

Re: Hello

Vee, I hope you managed to enjoy your day out. I remember having one day out with some friends without having to talk about CANCER and it was wonderful. We all need that. I have to echo Marmalade's comments about eating. The same applies to liquids too. It is so hard to sit back and watch but it's n...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Well, I don't know about anyone else but my mood is lifting more and more as I work my way through latest updates. First we had W&M's good news, then Stepuha's baby wide smile and gorgeous caring kiddies and now your good humour, with a side order of patient improvement. Excellent. The only fly in t...

Re: 36 yo adv pancr cancer patient treated in France

Again, a lovely to post to read! Keep them coming! I can visualise that supermarket Stepuha and my mouth is already drooling! The French don't sell the rubbish food we do here! France has always been one of our most favourite places to visit because of the cuisine. Many a time we've walked through F...
