Chemo and dialysis


Recommended Posts

Hi. My mum has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She is currently on kidney dialysis and has been told chemo is not an option because of this. They are going to consider operating but she has issues with her heart due to the dialysis so this might not be possible. Does anyone has experience of pancreatic cancer with a dialysis patient? Thanks.

I am one of the specialist nurses at PCUK and am sorry to read of your mum's recent diagnosis and her other health problems. I hope you find the forum an area of support, and the Charity's information useful. I wonder if you want to contact us directly on the Support Line and speak to myself or one of our other nurse specialists for some information and more detailed discussion?
