Re: Last day of the year !

Happy New Year Everyone!! May 2014 be filled with Joy, Peace and Happiness but if by some mischance it's not then "Keep On!" Twice blessed last night as I saw the New Year in with my wife, son and his fiancee and then in bed listened to the inspirational Steve Evans on Five Live. Suffering from term...

Re: Just checking in

Hi Gillian Wonderful to hear of your sister's successful treatment which will surely encourage Didge and her partner. Further evidence that diagnosis in time for surgical intervention is a real key to beating this disease. There is a huge need for GPS and the wider public to be better educated to ra...

Re: Last day of the year !

Hi Emma and all As Her Majesty put it a few years ago "Annus Horribilis"!! Still even now many of us have much for which to be thankful. For some it is the wonderful memories of their loved ones who have sadly been taken by this cruellest of illnesses and the amazing support offered by their own and...

Re: Just checking in

Hi Didge Welcome to the forum that you will find a great source of support and information as many of us have "been there got the T-shirt". I do hope that your boyfriend's infection clears quickly so that his chemo can resume as soon as possible, I'm sure you'll be aware that the chemo can lower res...

Re: My mom

Hi Ellie

Great news among all the sad tidings of the past few weeks. It's really good to have something positive we can take to heart for the New Year - all too few good news stories to inspire us. Best wishes to you and your "Miracle Mum"!

Love and Peace

Re: Lost in a nightmare

Dear Amanda So sorry to hear of this latest complication that Phil is suffering - this damned disease is so sneaky. It invariably seems to be some additional infection, growth or whatever that gives us major problems. For instance all my own tumours have been stabilised apart from a little blighter ...

Re: Feeling Low and Wondering What Next

Dear Janem What an absolute senseless nightmare for you and you don't mention any other family who may give you and your Dad some support at this really difficult time for you both. He, of course, has lost his partner of many years and you, in very difficult circumstances your much loved mother. Bot...

Re: Feeling Depressed, Anxious, Guilty or Isolated?

Ha Sarah Plenty of info on this thread for anyone who feels they need some support to get through the Christmas period. Funny isn't it that my GP has been pretty astounded by the pragmatic and positive way that I have dealt with PC since my diagnosis at the end of May 2012. This is possibly because ...

Re: Christmas

Julie A huge void will be felt this Christmas by each and every one who has lost a loved one during the year. The first birthday, anniversary, Christmas or any special date that you shared is always particularly poignant the first time it comes around. May the Peace and Goodwill of Christmas help to...

Re: waiting for diagnosis

Hi All I had several Mugga scans whilst on the clinical trial to check the bloodflow round my heart. Much as it says under the link that Cathy posted but the ECG in my case was ECG lite with only 4 or 5 electrodes compared to the full Monty I got with the trial nurses. Also two injections one that a...
