Re: So far so good!

Hi Steve Glad you enjoyed Germany and the survivors lunch. You are doing amazingly well!! Jonathan had the oxalyplatin dropped eventually from his treatment too. It did help. He was a guitarist so it was lovely to see him enjoying playing it again. All the very best to you, Margaret and your family ...

Re: My 41 years old husband has inoperable pancreatic cancer

Hi Susanna I am sorry but this is the first time I have managed to come on here for a while but I hope you got my text the other day as Didge had let me know. There isn't really anything I can add to all the lovely messages you have had but just to say I have been thinking of you often and am here i...

Re: My 41 years old husband has inoperable pancreatic cancer

Hi Susanna

I was just wondering how things were? Haven't heard from you for a few days and have been thinking of you often.

Take good care

Re: New Story -Thank You Forum Users and Support Nurses

Hi Annette Well done on the post and the film! I know I don't need to say welcome as I know you have been using the forum for a while. Tracy is doing so well :) As you know, Jonathan also suffered neuropathy in his fingers and feet and wrapping up warm is a necessity. Jonathan also had reflexology o...

Re: Not long left I fear

Hi Karen Thinking of you. I know how hard this is but it sounds as if your Dad is comfortable (albeit thirsty). My partner was thirsty too towards the end of his life which I think was because he got very clammy. I bought him one of those sports bottles that runners use and kept it topped up with wa...

Re: How long to get definite diagnosis

Hi Fiona This is great news!! Well done both of you. I agree, I often used to think, with my partner, how do people cope who have no-one to advocate for them? It makes me shudder. Re going on holiday, we had 2 European holidays last year. The first time we went with bog standard travel insurance and...

Re: My 41 years old husband has inoperable pancreatic cancer

Hi Susanna,

I am crossing my fingers very hard and hoping the hospice will sort things out for you. They are generally great places and will give you a little bit of a break too (in and around your little boys of course!).

Thinking of you

Re: So far so good!

Dear Steve,

I am so sorry to hear your news. I can well imagine your Mum offering you her pancreas bless her.

There will be a busy time now organising her funeral but thinking of you and sending love and strength for the days and weeks ahead.

Re: Abraxane -our experiences so far

Hi Nikki Good on you both!! Im tempted by the walk myself. At the moment I have another hair brained fundraising idea of doing a sponsored bike ride from London to Swanage. Bear in mind I haven't been on a bike in 20 years. Am getting a bike on Monday! If you see someone dangerously wobbling all ove...

Re: My 41 years old husband has inoperable pancreatic cancer

Hi Susanna Wonderful news about the CT scan. I know what a worry that was so I am so pleased for you :) All I can say with regards to the hospice is that what Jonathan (my partner) had in mind when he went wasn't that he was going for him but for me (for respite)... Maybe that is a different way to ...

Re: Wish someone would help him

Hi Leila

Like your Dad, Jonathan also had blood clots and took Clexane for a few months, like Steve does.

Sorry this is so short ... Am off into a meeting

Take care
