Our Story To Date

Postby wackywacky » Sat Mar 07, 2015 3:50 pm

Hi to you all, a year ago to day our journey started by being rushed in to hospital with stomach pain and vomiting coffee like granuals, then diagnoised with PC, we have had a duedum stent fitted , a billary stent fitted only 3 weeks on chemo then 2 heart attacks, a heart stent fitted, lost well over 4 stones, had 4 blood transfusions been rushed to A and E on a Saturday night, and just recently spent 12 day in our local cancer hospital with server pain and 20 plus liters of fluid drained from his stomach,(drain still in and fluid still coming out, to get the pain under control we have had to be on Ketermin for 5 day to reboot his pain receptors as drugs taking he had got used to and not doing what they should, pain is now sorted for the moment but we have high potassium levels, the hospital wanted to keep him in till the weekend but we came home Wednesday, the last few days have been hard wondering what is going to happen but I feel a lot easier today as a year to day later beloved reached his 3rd goal to see our daughter who as just get married to day via Skype as we are too poorly to travel down south. Well folks that's it in a nut shell, lets see what the next few days bring, love to you all and you lot who are doing well keep fighting the B and for those of you who are not doing so well I feel your pain but I know we will all keep fighting the B love wacky x x x x

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

Hi Wacky, written one reply but I've lost it lol.
Sorry to hear you are having a rough time and didn't make the wedding in person but thank goodness for Skype.
This bloody PC has played havoc with my family, it took my mum at 62 and her dad at 62 and I had a distal pancreatectomy 6 months ago for IPMTs. I am just waiting for my latest scan results.
Sending you big hugs and let's all keep fighting!!!
Love Sue

Hi Wacky, that surely has been a hard 12 months for you both, but great that the technology allowed you to be part of the wedding. I hope things pick up and that any further goals are achieved.
