Re: Fluid build up

Are the hospital putting a drain in to get rid of the ascites! My dad had a drain put in and that helped immensely, relieved all the stretching feeling. All you can do is take each day at a time.x

Re: Wish someone would help him

At least the hospital will be able to get his pain under control and can reassure him. Hopefully you can relax a bit as you know he is being cared for and you can call a nurse for an update day or night. Hope you all have a peaceful night.x

Re: Chemo for new diagnosis

Big hugs, must be terrifying for you all, only you can decide with your consultant whether you want the chemo. My dad had chemo following his whipple, he seemed tobauffer from side effects then they changed the chemo and he was okay on It. He would have tried anything and sadly for us even in the la...

Re: Mum's diagnosis

I'm so sorry to hear this, but I hope your mum is comfortable and as weird as it sounds that you can relax a little that she is being cared for and looked after. If only all our strength and fight can't cure cancer.

Re: Mum's diagnosis

sue poor you, you shouldn't have to have done all that, being honest and I'm sorry if it is too honest. My dad's chemo finished he had 2 months free then he started being sick, the scan showed that the evil cancer had spread into his stomach, I hope that's not the case for your mum. We all fought un...

Re: Our Story To Date

Big hugs,the beauty of Skype.I can't believe what a complete roller-coaster and how symptoms differ with PC. I lost my dad in July, the only thing I am grateful for if I can say that is he never had pain from it. We all just have to live one day at a time and aim and reach those goals. X

Re: Christmas Wishes

Thank you, and thank you for all you do, this forum is invaluable to so many. I lost my dad at the end of July aged 70. Not sure how we are going to get through the first Christmas without him, for my whole life I have had Christmas with dad. Just got to celebrate it in a way that he would have liked.
