Re: Wish someone would help him

Hi Leila, Glad you are back on the forum. I am pleased your Dad has you in his corner to fight for him. I am usually very calm but totally lost it in hospital this week - I felt so out of control and the doctors just seemed to be ignoring me and mum (they probably had too much to do) and I had to pi...

Re: My lovely Dad

Dad had a scan last week and it was good news we were told that the tumour/mass had not grown and remained stable. Though Dad had missed the last 2 of his gemcitabine chemo sessions (3:2 and 3:3) due to low blood count (neutrophils 0.9) . He is still got active cellulitis and inflammation in his leg...

Re: Mum's diagnosis

Hi Sue, Welcome to the forum, my 83 year old active dad was diagnosed in January with PC. I am glad your mum is having a stent as that seemed to help although it took over a month for his bilirubin levels to be low enough to start chemo. Ask the oncologist for Creon (pancreatic enzymes which help ge...

Re: Abraxane -our experiences so far

Welcome Johanna, I hope your Mom's scan goes well on Tuesday. Fingers crossed my Dad gets his results on Tuesday from his first scan since December.

Re: My lovely Dad

Hi Jeni,
Thank you for the advice. His district nurse is getting him a support stocking and his GP prescribed an antibiotic and some ointment. He is seeing the oncologist tomorrow so I will remind him to tell him.

He has just completed his second cycle of gemcitabine he is coping well and although he seems to have become frailer and is sleeping more often, he is now in better spirits and feels the chemo is giving him more time. Luckily he is...
