Re: side effects creon

Hi, My dealings with Creon may help, so I'll tell you what my experiences are / were. I was having terrible problems with diarrhoea when I came out of hospital with the knowledge I had a tumour in my Pancreas, so I went to see my GP who gave me Creon. Like you, if I went to the loo 20 times in one d...

Re: So far so good!

That is such good news Steve, down from 3cm to 2.2cm, I tell you if I get a result like that I will be over the moon. It's difficult when we're in this sort of "Limbo" stage, it's the not knowing which (if you let it) can become a bit of an obsession, but we can't let it, we have to do like Mo Farah...

Two scary dates ....4th December 2012 and 16th August 2013. Yes, I'm pleased it's ...

There one minute, gone the next

It's all my own stupid, silly fault..... So, I wrote to a VIP at a VIP hospital in London. I won't use names or what treatment was open to me, but will give a run down on what happened. In my initial email to the VIP I asked about a trail he had pioneered and asked if it would be possible to be part...

Re: scared

Hi J, It is awful and seems so unfair. My father died of stomach cancer aged 60, his two sons died of the same aged 58 & 59.....I'm now 59 ......I didn't stand a chance really of getting away with it. I beat Breast Cancer in 2007 then just last year before Christmas, Pancreatic came in as a primary ...

Re: A Yabadabado Celebration!

Hi Karen, I'm reading yours and Bob's notes with - I will admit, a little trepidation and a bit of panic. I know everyone is different, but my Chemo will be stopping at the end of August and I'm scared...... Half of me will be pleased to see the back of it because I am so tired, but the other half o...

Re: Pet Scan & constipation

I've never had a PET scan, but I do believe it gives much more information than an ordinary CT scan.

Good luck with the results, fingers well and truly crossed for you.
