Looking for treatment overseas?

Postby PCUK Nurse Jeni » Wed Apr 20, 2011 3:55 pm

Have you thought about going abroad for treatment for pancreatic cancer?

If so, how did you research it, and what were the differences between treatment abroad and in the UK?

Did you look into treatment in Europe, or further afield? Was it a case of paying for it? What drugs were they offering?
Was the treatment successful?

OR -do you know of anyone diagnosed with pancreatic cancer who went abroad for treatment?

We would love to hear your views.
