Re: My Husband

Hi Karen So sorry to hear your story - so similar to mine in many ways. You have already had some wonderful replies from others in the forum family that I am sure you now feel a little less alone and I hope that helps somewhat. My husband was just like Frank - he did not want to know anything other ...

Re: felt sick before I even started...

Hi Linda So sorry you are feeling so rotten - so wish I could help. You are doing amazingly well but entitled to feel down and sorry for yourself - just come on here and have a good rant! Keep strong my girl and remember you are not alone, we are all right behind you, wishing you well and sending yo...

Re: Hello from KATB

Hi Kate So glad you have had a nice Easter weekend and your Dad has managed to enjoy some walks. Great to hear that he is feeling better - I am sure that will continue as the jaundice improves. Indigestion certainly a regular problem for PC sufferers and I know my husband's diet post diagnosis beare...

Re: Hello from KATB

Exactly what this space is for, Kate, to get those thoughts out - they do go round and round don't they?! Nothing you will be thinking or feeling will look odd here, I assure you! Great that you are thinking about money-raising (raising awareness important to) - I so want to do something useful, aft...

Re: How to stay positive?

Hi Cheryl I am so sorry to hear about your lovely Dad and know how this terrible disease turns lives upside down. You will understandably be totally devastated and finding it very difficult to come to terms with everything. At the very least you have found this forum and you can be sure that you hav...

Re: Hello from KATB

Hi Kate (and Kate's mum) After reading through the latest posts I am thinking you are right to seek a second opinion, if only to get the opportunity to speak to someone who is not writing your Dad off!! It is totally unacceptable to have to speak to an oncologist who is so dismissive - I would tell ...

Hi Kate, welcome to the forum - I am sorry to hear of the circumstances of you having to, however and my heart goes out to you, your Dad and your family.

Re: new members

Hello and welcome to the forum. I am so sorry to hear of your diagnosis. This must be so frightening for you, especially as you are not clear about everything with the language barrier. I am not sure what services are available in France, but certainly here our NHS does help with interpreters - is t...

Re: FIRST MILESTONE- MY PARENTS WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

Dear Tenacity I am so sorry to hear of your loss. You must be devastated at the speed that this happened and you are right, something does need to be done to change things. You will understandably need time to come to terms with what has happened but know that we are here for you whenever you need u...

Re: Finding it hard to cope

Oh my word, miracles do really happen!! How absolutely wonderful. You must be feeling on top of the world, Ellie and rightly so. I am so happy for you, your mum and your family. As Dianne said, you can now plan ahead with confidence and really look forward to good times ahead. I assume the continued...

Re: Finding it hard to cope

Hi Ellie - you are doing exactly the right thing. Letting out all of your emotions when you need to, surrounding yourself with a good support system, making plans so you, your mum and all the family have something to focus on, to aim for and to look forward to. I know it's hard but keeping positive,...

Re: So far so good!

Hi Steve - good news about picking up on the blood clot. My husband had the same problem (clot in the arm near the site of his PICC line) and also had to administer daily blood thinning (clexane) injections. Just some advice about that - vary the spot you deliver the injection as repeated injections...

Re: My dad

Hi there - so lovely to hear from you and good luck with the second opinion. We will all, I'm sure be interested to hear what happens there. So sorry to hear how unwell your Dad is with the chemo. It is so unfair that some people suffer so much. I often wonder why we get such a variety of experience...

Re: interesting article

Wow, Linda, that IS interesting. Thank you so much for sharing it. It really does make you wonder whether the NHS is accepting defeat far too easily when it comes to PC. I guess it does all come down to cost and the NHS just can't and won't risk any money.
