Re: Husband just diagnosed at 36

Thank you Mark! I can never quite pin down what emotion I feel but sadness is very close. Not a bad sadness. Just the odd feeling of why us. 99% of the time we are incredibly normal and positive though. Our daughter makes that so much easier. She keeps us busy and is currently so addicted to lego th...

Funny you should say that Julia, Jim is also a huge Man United fan! I think he keeps that quiet at work though

Re: My Story

Thank you for your post and I wish you well. My husband aged 36 was diagnosed with inoperable PC in November and I hope that In a years time I'll be writing a similar post as you have today. A little bit of hope is enough for me to cling onto!

Re: Husband just diagnosed at 36

Hi Amanda, Thank you so much for your message. I am so pleased that your husband had a successful trip to Germany. It must have been such a long road for you all! We hope that one day we will be in a position to do the same. At the moment Jim's tumour is wrapped around vessels and also spread to his...

Re: Husband just diagnosed at 36

Aww thank you Emma! The forum has been fantastic as have the nurses! Very lucky to have found it and all of you. We are doing well most days but there are always days when it isn't so easy.

Re: Husband just diagnosed at 36

Thanks Cheryl, I hope the Folfirinox goes well for Steve too. I got a bit of a fright when they started the first cycle as within five minutes Jim completely changed colour and feel asleep but it happened so quickly it was as though he fainted. Thankfully though it turns out that it was due to the f...

Re: Husband just diagnosed at 36

Thanks Marie! The hiccups are like clockwork and start after around 10am the day following chemo. It's funny, I think he prefers the diarrhoea to the hiccups!!! The Creon have helped maintain his weight but Jeni the nurse on here has suggested he keep a food diary and they will advise if he should t...

Re: Husband just diagnosed at 36

Hello everyone. I hope you all had a nice Christmas and New Year. I did but glad to get back into a routine now. Just wanted to let you all know how Jim is getting on. He has had two cycles of folfirinox now and his side effects seem to have settled into a routine now. Immediately after the treatmen...

Re: Husband just diagnosed at 36

Hi everyone, Thank you for kind messages. Our daughter had a brilliant birthday and was exhausted after it. She is now all set for Christmas. My husband had his first folfirinox treatment yesterday which went well. He is a little nauseous but the anti sickness drugs are taking edge off it and he is ...

Re: Husband just diagnosed at 36

Hello everyone, Thank you for your kind words and advice. It really helped us when we met the oncology team last night. My husband will be starting folfirnox next week for 3months. He has also been given Creon to help with his dodgy tummy and told to eat, eat, eat!!! I lost track of how many mince p...

Re: Husband just diagnosed at 36

Sorry another question....... I know it is impossible to tell how well my husband will cope with chemotherapy but I was wondering from your own experience how independent you think he might be. Iam currently half way through my teacher training year and have now broken for Xmas. However, iam still u...

Re: Husband just diagnosed at 36

Thank you all for your incredibly kind words and advice. I am very lucky to have found this forum and all of you! My husband is generally very well and after losing half a stone in the autumn he has now stabilised and even put a few pounds back on. His appetite is also still very good. The doctors a...

Husband just diagnosed at 36

I have been looking at the forum for the past week since my husband was diagnosed. I have found the forum honest but has given me hope too. It all started prior to our wedding in July of this year when he started to have a dodgy tummy and back pain. On honeymoon things started to get worse obviously...
