Re: Battling to get treament

I’m so sorry to hear you’re having such a horrible time Toodotty. You’ve been such a huge support on this forum and I am always amazed at your bravery and positive attitude.

I’m thinking of you and hoping you improve quickly.

Re: Can not believe I’m here again

Arrh - you are definately still in shock. To have this cruel disease take both of your parents is tragic and must be more than you can bear. I know exactly what you mean about the reaction of people in ‘the real world’. I too find that. I find that some of my friends just don’t know what to say and ...

Re: Can not believe I’m here again

I’m so sorry to hear such sad news. You must still be in shock. My dad was diagnosed on May 17th and is currently in a hospice getting weaker as each day passes. I thought his decline had been fast but two weeks for your dad is shocking. My dad spent 10days in hospital before being transferred to th...

Re: Sadness

Thank you Toodotty - you are so incredibly brave. For you to be able to be so thoughtful of your families feelings at a time when you are suffering so much is incredible. My dad was transferred to the hospice this afternoon. We had almost given up hope that a bed would ever become available for him ...

Re: Sadness

Thank you V and Jeni. I think it just hit me last night - I’d been fighting so hard for the last few days trying to get my dad the proper medical care that I hadn’t had time to deal with my own emotions. I think also that when my dad was having chemo we had some hope that he may feel a bit better fo...

Sadness

The last time I posted on here I was talking about my dads chemo and being accepted onto a trial. When starting this post I hesitated with the title and opted for ‘sadness’ as this is the overwhelming feeling I have deep inside right now. My dad’s chemo has stopped as he is too ill to continue (afte...

Re: My Mum's PC Diagnosis

Good morning H, I read your post and could relate to so much you say. My dad was recently diagnosed with stage 4 PC and I felt like the whole world changed that day and if I’m honest it has not, and will never be the same again. It is totally consuming and like you I am desperate to make the most of...

Re: Accelerate Trial

Thank you Sandiemac. It’s a case of one day (or one hour) at a time at the moment. I know that it’s my dad’s decision and I’m sure if he’s accepted into the trial he will give it a shot. At least that way we’ll all feel he had the best chance to fight it even though it can’t be cured. It’s such a cr...

Accelerate Trial

My dad was diagnosed with PC stage 4 cancer about 5 weeks ago. It has spread to his liver, perinium and lining of his stomach. He’s had a liver biopsy and been waiting to see the oncologist. He had an appointment last week with an oncologist and has been told he may be accepted into the Accelerate t...
