Re: MUM DYING WITH PANCREATIC CANCER

Hello Margaret, It is so awful to see what your mum, yourself and your family have been through. Unfortunately, when people have other medical problems, they often form the basis for investigations when they become unwell. This is not only the case with thyroid and diabetes, but also for other cases...

Re: New to Board

Hi Its, Steroids are used for many different reasons -they reduce swelling and inflammation (ie: in the case of enlarged liver or brain); they are also given to increase appetite. In chemotherapy, they are used short term as an anti-sickness medication, usually over 2 days. When a person is on stero...

Re: Reply for Jeni and mount kilimanjaro

Lynne, This is good news that you are going to contact PALS. It does seen a bit strange that the sister would go after knowing Andy for such a short time. I haven't come across that. It may have been the PALS meeting triggered something -people cope differently with events, and maybe this was the ca...

Re: Gemma's Big Night Out! -

Hi Debbie,

A huge "thank you" and very well done for the amazing amount of money you raised.

I am sure Gemma was there dancing with you!

Everything which raises awareness is brilliant, and you have helped others even in your own loss.

Wow!

Re: Gemma - 8th August 2010

Hi Lynne, With regard to the Pals meeting, then I would want to start by asking -what was your objective at the start of the meeting? If this has not been met, then you may well want to contact them again and arrange a meeting. At this stage, I do not think it would make sense to include the ward si...

Re: Gemma - 8th August 2010

Hi Debbie, That is fine if you want to keep in touch. I can understand that people often revisit things when some time elapses and they feel up to it. It is an important part of the process to be able to understand what has gone on, and to have any questions answered, particularly if there are 'burn...

Hi Pam, Sorry to hear you are feeling like you are back to square one in relation to your dad's death. I am not familiar with your story -just joined 3 months ago and I work for PCUK.

Re: New to Board

Hello Its, Sorry to hear that your dad is not having a great time with his Gemcitabine. Though, it is, as you said, good news that the chemo is keeping the disease stable. Many chemotherapy agents cause taste changes and a metallic taste in the mouth. This will lead to, as in your dad's case, a lack...
