Re: So far so good!

Jim was advised to take his just whenever he felt sick during the folfirinox. He finds he only needs a couple the first day and that's it. He's never actually been sick at all.

Re: Newly Identified Tumours One Year on from Whipple

Aww how cute Amanda! Perhaps the kids could all release that song to raise money for the charity ;-) I would certainly buy it! Yes, she is also totally oblivious other than knowing he has "a wire" every fortnight to fix his poorly stomach. She is only four and given he tends to go to work most days ...

Re: Newly Identified Tumours One Year on from Whipple

So sorry to hear about your husband and I hope it all goes well! I remember reading your story when my husband was diagnosed and it really struck a cord with me as we too have a young child aged 4 and my husband is a similar age as yours. We will be thinking of you all. My husband has now had eleven...

Re: Update - stabilised tumour after folfirinox

Re: Update - stabilised tumour after folfirinox

Thank you everyone for the kind words! We are just enjoying his health and he is certainly making the most of it! He has had us on more holidays & long weekends in the past 3months than I've been on in my whole life! I'm certainly not complaining but my expanding waistline is struggling to cope :-) ...

Re: Update - stabilised tumour after folfirinox

On a side note - we are thinking of looking into nanoknife after the next six folfirinox rounds. Has anyone on here had it and do you know what the requirements are with regards to health and tumour location & size! Also will they do it if the spots on his spleen and liver have not gone away?

Re: Update - stabilised tumour after folfirinox

Thanks very much everyone!!! We are really pleased and Jim just glad the hiccups, lock jaw, cold sensitivity and dodgy tummy have been worth it :-) We even had a bottle of champagne last night! Friends and family don't seem to understand that "staying the same" is a real victory! Perhaps at the back...

Re: need some advice please

My husband almost made the mistake of thinking he was better and not going back to the doctor. Thankfully the ball had started rolling with Bupa. He was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer which has spread. Of course I hope you are getting better and it is just a minor illness but please don...

Redemption penalty for paying mortgage off

Hi everyone, I was just wondering if anyone had been in a position whereby they paid off their mortgage following their diagnosis and wether or not you had to pay the redemption charge for paying the mortgage early or did they waive it given the circumstances. I was just hoping to get an idea of if ...
