Re: Lost in a nightmare

Hi Amanda Looks like Phil's treatment would disgrace a third world country let alone the UK. I think Steve and I have both had the benefit of excellent service from our local NHS so find it very difficult to understand the difference some experience just because of their location. One thing that see...

Re: Nanoknife Done

Hi Sarah That's our girl! Living up to the Nike slogan "Just do it!" Your Mum is so fortunate to have a scrapper like you in her corner while she recovers her strength. I'm sure, from my own experience, that she will soon bounce back once the effects of the GA and her understandable post-op soreness...

Re: Simon Hoggart

Thanks Julia A lovely article by his daughter and it must be very difficult for someone in the public eye to decide whether to go public. I'm just sorry that Simon decided against doing so as our cause could certainly do with a high profile figurehead to grab the headlines. It would also be good to ...

Re: My Mother

Hi Justin Welcome to the forum that no one wants to join but that all the members get so much benefit from through the advice love and support of other contributors. I am pretty sceptical about "natural cures" but chemo is proven to be effective in many cases despite the odd side effects some people...

Re: Nanoknife and Cyberknife

Hi Mark Excellent news and I sincerely hope the Nano knife has had the required effect. Two months for the CT scan will seem an awfully long time but if you can get your ski trip in that will help it pass. I am so full of admiration for your courage in getting this done and indeed must chase up my m...

Re: Taking the plunge!

Thanks All Your lovely remarks all very cheering and I'm pleased to say that both her GP and later hospital appointments went well with no major problems revealed so she is being referred to the local hospital's Memory Clinic. After her afternoon hospital visit we joined my daughter, a couple of her...

Re: Nanoknife Done

Hi Sarah Sorry to hear of the additional complications rearing their ugly head when distinctly not needed. Nevertheless it seems your Mum has weathered the procedure well and overcome her fear of the GA. Great to hear she is receiving top notch after care which will be a big relief to you as it's so...

Re: Simon Hoggart

Hi All I don't think we'll ever know what treatment he had but he certainly seems to have bucked the trend as far as statistics go if he was inoperable when diagnosed. Never mind about not seeing retirement I was told last May I was unlikely to see Christmas!! Well we're now looking forward to spend...

Simon Hoggart

RIP Simon Hoggart, broadcaster and journalist who sadly died yesterday from Pancreatic Cancer after suffering from the disease for some years. Sincere condolences to his friends and family. I was not aware that he was actually suffering from PC and do feel that it is a pity that a high profile victi...

Re: Folfirinox DONE - Nanoknife New Year

Bless you Sarah, that's what your forum family is here for!! Rant away as it just makes things that little bit easier when you feel you've got someone who cares that you can share your troubles with. Virtual hugs and keep on top of your cold - just what you needed I'm sure!!

Love and Peace

Re: Folfirinox DONE - Nanoknife New Year

Good Luck to both Mark ans Sarah's Mum! Hope both procedures go really well and achieve the required outcomes. Like the cat who's just eaten a piece of cheese I'll be waiting with baited breath!! More evidence to put before my Professor!

Re: Devastated

Hi Cheryl Cannot recommend it highly enough,particularly if Steve can get it done as a key hole procedure as I did. It just made such an amazing improvement to my quality of life as I was able to come off all pain relief almost immediately. I had no problems at all and the abdominal and back pain wa...

Re: Devastated

Hi Cheryl I have droned on about the pain relief operation that I had last June ad nauseam but I do thoroughly recommend that if Steve is well enough and is suffering severe abdominal and back pain that you ask about this. I do put my own good progress down to being pain free as constant pain or the...
