Re: Abraxane -our experiences so far

Up and down we go, good day, bad day. No hope, a little hope. They think there are some tumours in his bowel, only small ones, but combined with the complexity of his plumbing following his surgery, they are causing problems. So they are going to try and put a duodenal stent in to help his stomach e...

Re: What Next

Hi Wacky, That is wonderful that your beloved has been feeling so well. Paul seems to be following in his steps, first the gabapetin and now he is going to have a duodenal. With all of this, somehow I think we just know what the right thing to do is. Your posts always make me smile too, you are real...

Re: For new members.

Leila,
What a great post, you are so thoughtful and so right. I would never have imagined I would find a forum useful, but a virtual hug is an amazing thing!

Re: Abraxane -our experiences so far

Thank you all so much, my lovely PC family, Jayne that such a lovely thing that Jem did, I imagine it gives you pleasure and sadness at the same time. It's good to hear Jessica is doing well, that is a reflection of the wonderful, loving parenting she has had. I was just reading on Leila's post abou...

Re: Abraxane -our experiences so far

Everything is a little clearer, and I have altered my previous post as I had got the wrong end of the stick slightly. Yet again our oncologist has not been very forthcoming with the truth, and we found out yesterday, from another doctor, that the disease has progressed and Paul probably has a mass o...

Re: Abraxane -our experiences so far

Thanks everyone, the fact that you have taken the time to write means so much. Paul had another ultrasound yesterday and they believe they have found the cause of the problem. A bit of his bowel, below his liver appears blocked and is stopping the bile draining away. So tomorrow he is having a drain...

Re: Abraxane -our experiences so far

Hi all, Paul didn't have his chemo last week as he was jaundiced. He has also had more pain and has lost some weight. They admitted him to hospital instead. He has had numerous scans but they cannot find a cause for the jaundice and there is still no change to the Cancer on the scan. His oncologist ...

Re: Wish someone would help him

Leila, Paul hates going in to Hospital (he's in at the mo. will update when I can) but once he is there he always feels a sense of relief, but the decision is your Dad'. It's so hard for you being so far from your Dad and only being able to judge how he is by phone, but you are doing an amazing job....

Re: Tumour markers, platelets and Folfirinox

Oh, yes we have had blips in tumour markers, they have gone up, down and are back up again, but still no changes on the scan this week. Definitely thinking the stress will kill me before the Cancer gets Paul at this rate, you know how I feel I am sure!
Lots of love, Didge,
