Pancreas Cancer Web
Aged 56, female, no previous health issues. NO risk factors at all for
pancreatice cancer. Diagnosed 3 months ago after weeks of severe abdominal
pain - misdiagnosed as high BP by first GP. Second opinion, CAT scan showed
inoperable tumour. First oncologist I saw gave me 12 months - second opinion
again - my current oncologist won't put a time on it. Started chemotherapy
with gemcitibine and since then weight has come back on, pain has completely
disappeared and I'm feeling so much better and stronger.I take a cocktail of
pain meds each day but they do not appear to be affecting me badly. See
myself as very fortunate although am angry at the way life has turned out.
Not ready to die yet.
