Mar 8, 2016 · I have just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in Cancer

I am still hanging in there. They switched my chemo, now have treatment once a week for three weeks then a week off. Can’t tell you what it is, they said I would loose my hair but it has only stunted it growth. Minimal side effects on this one so we shall see this week when I get CT. Insurance denied petscan saying I have already had three…but that’s in almost two-years of treatment. Gotta’ love those number crunchers!

Glad to hear you are doing well SJG! Remember, just one day at a time 😉

Still hanging in there. Will switch to another Chemo next week since, after a two-month delay in treatment due to medical reasons I have several new lesions along the colon which is causing some digestive issues.

AND SJG, your good health will see you a long way. Be ready for diet issues, low energy, and weght loss.

SJG, the chemo is rough, take it from someone who just finished treatment number 21. It has been 17 months since they found mine and since it had spread surgery is not an option. Expect to loose weight, be sensitive to cold, and want lots of sleep. Gas has been a problem for me…extremely painful! OTC gas relief helps. Good luck on your treatments and don’t forget to thank someone for another day of life.

Never was able to get it on my computer and did not want to tie up the phone for an hour after downloading the ap.  Would be nice if we could get it on the computer.
