Re: my story and struggling x

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. To lose your mum is difficult enough - to now being everyone else's rock when you are feeling in need of support yourself and being upset by your sisters - you must be feeling quite overwhelmed with grief. No surprise Mother's Day was difficult - the world keeps t...

Re: Dear dad

Hi Alison and Kevin - glad to hear that your Dad's medication is keeping him pain free and eating OK - all good to keep his strength up and no doubt Sky Sports excellent for keeping his morale high! You are right to just take each day as it comes - there will be a lot of do and take in and really ca...

Re: My mum

I am so sorry Dawn. I don't know what else to say - it is just SO unfair. So wish I could help, take some of this burden away. Know that you have a place where you can understandably rant and we will always be here to listen and offer a collective hug.
Keep strong.

Re: Newbie, advice and support please?

Hi Sam Thinking of you and sending my love. So lovely to hear Anne opening her eyes for one last look at her grand-daughter and how your daughter's sixth sense is bringing you some comfort. My daughter comes out with some amazing things sometimes which makes me firmly believe that there is "somethin...

Re: Chemo or no?

Oh my goodness, I am so sorry to hear of your diagnosis. I am your age and lost my husband to PC last year (he was 46), we have a teenage daughter. I cannot imagine how you must be feeling, trying to decide what to do next. Before my husband's diagnosis, I had always imagined that it would be a clea...

Re: My mum

Hi Dawn You are certainly on a roller coaster and I can understand your feeling of being overwhelmed. You are doing amazingly well though, supporting your Mum and now your Dad, with all the worry that involves and the strength it takes. Take good care of yourself won't you - I now how easy it is to ...

Re: Driving License...donate Pancreas?

Absolutely! It is very complex and every sufferer has their own unique presentation of it. I guess organ transplants will always be out of the question in cancers that are difficult to diagnose early. I, like you, was completely ignorant about the pancreas (am still no expert) but hope PCUK make som...

Re: So far so good!

Thank goodness for your GP's speedy response, Steve. So wish this was more the norm - it would make such a difference to survival stats for this disease. One thing I would say with regards to radiotherapy post "measuring up" - make sure that you maintain your body weight, if you can. My husband was ...

Re: Help please to ease wretching ?

Dear Kev and Alison So sorry to hear about your Dad's diagnosis and the difficulties with eating. That must be awful for him to endure and for you to watch. I am sorry, I do not have any experience of this but I am sure there are others who do and will offer their advice. I would suggest you email t...

I do believe every experience in life, good and bad, is a lesson to be learned so can't switch off my inner student! I am not a religious person but have been leaning towards bu...

Re: where does it end??

So sorry to hear that your Dad's plans to move to the hospice over the weekend fell through. It must be so difficult to watch him go through all of this. I do hope that things improve and that you are getting enough support as family.
Sending you love and strength.
