Re: my dad

Hi Elisejo, I am so sorry to learn about your dad's treatment in hospital,it is horrendous to read things like this, but it seems to be all to common. I was admitted into hospital December 2012 and given the news that I had pancreatic cancer, I too was alone when the news was given to me. It was the...

Re: Never rains but it bl**dy pours

Thank you Julia, Steve, Cathy and Bee. I am on injections called Dalteparin Sodium for this week and then I have another scan next Tuesday, so I suppose I will know better then how long I will need the injections for. They are very painful to administer.... We - hubby and I - are in the throws of bo...

Never rains but it bl**dy pours

Finished Chemo....about four weeks ago. Usually in my Chemo weeks, I've had a slight swelling in my legs and ankles, but it went in my rest week. So when my right leg and ankle stayed a little bit swollen, I didn't think too much about it, I felt it would revert back to normal soon....four weeks lat...

Disappionted

Hi, I went to speak with my Oncologist last night and was disappointed as there hadn't been any reduction to the tumour. Okay, it's stayed the same and I know that is a result....as it hasn't flared-up again or become larger, but I guess I wanted a miracle that just isn't going to happen. He is plea...

Re: Planning Chemo in Prep for Surgery

Hi Sarah, It sounds awful what your dear mum is going through at the moment, I really feel for you both. I'm no expert, but Pancreatitis and how long it takes to resolve I think depends on whether it is acute or chronic. Acute seems to resolve after one week. It's thought acute pancreatitis occurs w...

Re: Nanoknife...yes or no....you decide

Thanks for your reply Steve and like you say, still of interest and that's exactly why I posted it. It's up to an individual as to whether they feel the benefits outweigh the risks and let's face it Steve, I feel you and I are of the same thinking, we will try anything to stay alive and beat this di...

Nanoknife...yes or no....you decide

I recently wrote to Jeremy Hunt MP with regard to why Nanoknife was available on the NHS for some 'types' of cancers with the exception of Pancreatic....I felt I was being discriminated against for having the 'wrong' cancer. I received a reply from his office this morning. Is Nanoknife safe....the d...

Re: Unsuccessful whipple attempt

Hi Heidi, Like Steve says this is fantastic news and gives hope to us all. My tumour reduced in size after Chemo from 49mm to 33mm and that was only after five courses of treatment, I have now finished all my Chemo sessions and had a CT scan 30th August, I hope to receive the results on Tuesday. I'm...

Re: Important to have medical support you trust

I don't know what I would have done without my Oncologist, I can honestly say he's my rock. He does anything.....absolutely anything to help me and I feel so lucky to be with him. Let's face it, when your Oncologist phones you to ask how you are at 7pm in the evening, well I think it speaks volumes....

wondering if stent is blocked

I thought I was starting with a cold because I keep feeling achy and my temperature is up and down, but nothing else has materialize cold wise; no sniffles. The highest my temperature has been was 37.4 which I didn't think was too bad and this morning - Sat 31st, it's 36.9, but it's my tummy ache (o...
