Re: Pancreatic cancer or bile duct cancer?

Hi Hilary, I truly struggled at first with Creon. Jeni and Dianne the nurses on PCUK encouraged me to continue with them as my problem was malabsorption, simply I wasn't taking enough Creon, so the loo was my best friend most of the day, I dare not move too far away. I started on 10000 for breakfast...

Wonderful news June with regards to your daughter's wedding and your husband being able to attend. So sorry his pain is now causing him trouble.

Re: My Husband

Has anybody else ever felt like they are distancing themselves from the person they love who has got the cancer? Sometimes i feel as though we are not so close because it is a way of stopping the worry. It is weird as if i am trying to stop myself from being hurt. Yet I love my husband with all my h...

Re: A little celebration...

That is such good news Cathy for Jonathon and yourself. I'm watching your posts with interest and hope as I will be finishing my Chemo in the middle of August, so I will admit to being a little scared of my safety blanket being taken away from me. My scan is at the end of August so I suppose like yo...

I had to laugh

Hi everyone, Just felt I had to share this with you, but I'm hoping it comes across and it wasn't a case of you having to be there. My daughter - when she is home from Uni - always comes with me to my chemo sessions and yesterday - Friday 19th was one of those days. As we were travelling back home i...

Re: A Mother in a Million

Hi Nia, I also have spots on my liver, but my consultant said the Chemo should see them off and he's just told me to keep as fit and healthy as I possibly can and he feels my prognosis is good. Okay I may not live to a great old age, but as many years as I can get through would be fantastic to me, p...

I thought some people might be interested in this article. If only we could trial it in the UK, it always seems that the USA are miles ahead of us.

Re: Wilko Johnson

I remember seeing 'Doctor Feelgood' in about 1980....something and I thought "What a mad man Wilko Johnson is" but when you speak to him on a one to one basis which we were fortunate to do after the concert, he's a lovely man. His wife died in ....I think 2004 .....of cancer and I believe that is wh...

Re: The Stent

Thank you everyone. I think it's probably the iron tablets causing my tummy ache, so will just take it every other day.

The Stent

Hi, How would I know if the stent - which was inserted to help drain away the bile in my pancreas - had ...erm...gone? It was still there when I had a CT scan on May 17th, it's just that I've been experiencing a tiny bit of stomach pain...only really mild....but a bit like it was before I knew I had...

Re: New numbers

Hi Mike,

I asked in one of your other posts, if you would be able to explain to me what trial you were waiting to have?

Thanks
