Re: New diagnosis

Welcome Cig....as Veema has said, there's only one choice in this situation and that's to get on with it. Your partner will need your emotional and physical support and you'll feel drained at times but there'll be good times too and I'm certain that you'll both come to terms with the situation and f...

Re: Newly Diagnosed

Dear Elaine....I've been checking for your update every day since your last posting and I'm so very sorry to read what I was fearing for you both. You did the right thing for Pete by bringing him home and, apart from the confusion and stress of not having the correct medications on hand, you and you...

Re: Mum of 42 recently diagnosed inoperable PC

Tony...This is so sad. Please accept my condolences on the passing of Ruth. She was a true fighter of this dreadful disease and was so positive in her posts that I thought she would be the one to beat it. I'm so very sorry to read your posting. Her journey was long and hard fought, you should be ver...

Re: Newly Diagnosed

Dear Elaine....have just read your latest post with a feeling of sadness for you both and in a selfish way, for Allan and myself too. It's that fear again of eventuality. I do feel for you and will reiterate what others have said. Your GP must be involved , they're the ones who can review any medica...

Re: Hospital Diagnostics Review

Hi Marmalade.....It would be marvellous for future patients if their oncology appointments could be arranged on the day of diagnosis. It would also be great if at the diagnosis the patient isn't given confusing, conflicting information. We were told on the day of the scan that chemo would be pointle...

Re: Newly Diagnosed

Hello Elaine....I've just read your latest post and am so sorry that you and Pete didn't get the results you so desperately needed. I don't know what else to say to you except that you know you have to just get on with it. I hope that Pete can manage to stay a bit positive.

Re: Hospital Diagnostics Review

Marmalade... Very well done for your tenacity and expertise and to see some excellent results must make you feel all your hard work was worth it. After nursing Louis through his illness to the end nobody would have blamed you for wanting nothing more to do with PC. You deserve our admiration for you...

Re: Re dark thoughts

Welcome Norma I wonder if your Dad's just telling you how upset he is at hearing that his life may soon be over? I do think that sometimes people are better off not knowing what their prognosis is. My husband gets very down and says how fed up his about his illness. Years ago this information was gi...

Re: Newly Diagnosed

Hello Elaine... poor Pete having to endure that indignity and if the chairs are anything like the ones where Allan went for his scans, they're not comfortable at all. I'm not surprised you were cross. We know the scan departments are busy but when people who are so very ill have to have a scan some ...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Oh, Mo... you are a comic. I'm piling the weight on...I lost almost 3 stone at SW a few years ago and kept it off until last year. Now, I daren't get on the scales. Allan won't get on them because he's so scrawny and I don't get on because I'm in denial. I dust the blooming things. You should buy yo...

Re: Hello

I've been framing messen, as we say in the North, and am in a better frame of mind. So, thanks, Mo and Elaine, and please don't send the ironing! Actually, we've had a good few days, Allan was hardly eating anything at the beginning of the week and today he's had porridge, a beef sandwich and wants ...
