Re: Need some advice if possible !

Right...what to do next. Dad has only been out of bed for about 2 hrs all day. He still has these terrible pains in his back that seem to build up and then shooting pain happens. He also has pains in his tummy. It's hard to understand or gauge exactly how I'll he is because he was always so fit and ...

Re: Need some advice if possible !

Dad came out of the hospice last night and he still isn't good. I think because the last time he had the transfusion he felt so much better that this session would make him feel the same. He seemed whilst he was in there to feel quite perky he ate more whilst he was there than he had in the 3days le...

Re: Need some advice if possible !

I took him to the hospice this morning and raised the issue of the breathlessness with the nurse and she said it's probably because his blood levels are low and it's not allowing the oxygen round his body. But I'm worried it could now be clots but I won't be there to ask the question when the doctor...

Re: Please can someone advise me!

Thank you Julia....it does feel at the moment we are coping alone although the hospice are really lovely. Dad has had his worst day today. Constantly cold out of breath and now he has got the shakes.

Re: Please can someone advise me!

Thank you Sandra....it's so hard seeing dad deteriorate like he has. Everyone talks about breast cancer and all the other cancers but no one discusses pancreatic cancer and I now realize how devastating this illness is that cannot be cured in many cases as it is too late to diagnose. Times are going...

Re: Please can someone advise me!

Just wondered what would happen next? Dad had a blood transfusion about 3weeks ago which really helped him as he was getting really out of breath and felt really cold all the time, after wards you could really see a difference. But now he has reverted back to how he was... It is so awful to see him ...

Re: Please can someone advise me!

I think I will get a lot of support from this forum. Thankyou for taking the time to reply to me. I will contact the GP on Tuesday to see if he can get another scan maybe. Since going to the hospital in march and one round of chemo we have seen no other health professional so we are very much in lim...

We were devastated as march the previous year the hospital did a scan and said there was a cyst on his pancreas but was nothing to worry about. It was only because my dad kept saying he did...
