Re: 24/7 its non stop since diagnosis

Jools, I am sittin here crying for you and Bill. I have learned so much as to how to cope with all of this through your posts and I know this is now closer to happening to me too. I can't think of what else to say except to say thank you to you for your support and that I am thinking of you always x...

Re: Another 'newbie'

Thanks Debs and Paul, I know you both know exactly what this is like so it means so much more to me to read your replies. Saw Dad yesterday and today and no better, feet very swollen so we phoned the chemo ward number we'd been given and spoke to a really nice doc. Dad was up out of bed today but ju...

Re: Another 'newbie'

What a tough, horrible, dreadful journey this is. After missing his 3rd chemo recently due to his bloods being down we thought Dad was doing away fine. Then last week, on his chemo free week, he got his flu jab - and yes we asked should he really get this in the middle of chemo and were told he defi...

Re: 24/7 its non stop since diagnosis

Jools, hugs from me too, like your Bill my Dad seems to have dipped alarmingly in the last week. I don't know what else to say, sometimes I feel like I'm screaming silently. Stay strong and we'll all be here when you need us, post when you feel you want to but know I'll be thinking of you all weeken...

Re: 24/7 its non stop since diagnosis

Oh my darling Jools, my heart filled up for you when I read your post, I can almost feel your exhaustion. You are right not to do lifting, the last thing you need is to injure yourself just now. I hope they can help with Bill's blisters and cellulitis which would do so much to make him feel more com...

Re: Another 'newbie'

Dad's chemo was cancelled due to his blood count being too low :cry: we had been told to expect that this might happen along the way but it was still a disappointment when I got the call not to leave work early as planned to take him for chemo. So he has only managed two out of the three planned ses...

Re: my friend wendy

Laura, I am so sorry to hear about your friend. Wendy would have known I am sure what a support you were to her, you could not have done any more than you did. I have read and always looked for your posts over the last few months before I had the courage to post myself as your words always gave me h...

Re: Another 'newbie'

Jools, you are right my Dad is a really proud man too. Even though he's now thin as a pin he's still delighted he isn't (so far) losing his hair.He still has a full head of hair and I know that was in his mind when chemo was suggested. Crazy I know! I think the worst thing for him is thinking he mig...

Re: Another 'newbie'

Hi Jool2504 and Sue, Thanks for making us feel so welcome here, I am so touched by the kindeness shown on this site. It is my little oasis of calm in a frightening maddening frustrating situation. Jools I know what you mean about long sleeve tops, Dad refuses to wear anything other than that, on rar...

Re: Another 'newbie'

Thanks Jacqui, I am so sorry to hear about your mum and I do know exactly how you feel. In this age of advanced medical treatments and the fantastic things that the medical profession can achieve nowadays I think my second biggest shock after Dad's diagnosis was reading the poor prognosis for PC and...

Re: Another 'newbie'

Thanks Deb for your reply. Dad's tumour is in the body of the pancreas and he hasn't experienced any jaundice so far. All we know is the tumour is round the main vein which means surgery is impossible and it is about 5 - 6 cms big. His fatigue is huge though and that frustrates him so much. On MST m...

Another 'newbie'

Just wanted to say thank you to all of the 'regular' posters on this site. I am sure I am not alone to have gained so much comfort and understanding through just reading your posts over the last few months but not quite brave enough then to post myself. I'm certain there are so many of us just readi...
