This is a photo of my eldest daughter( I have four daughters and a son) This was taken in July at Manchester Airport. My two eldest daughters had treated me to five days in Dublin.My eldest is called Dee ( Delia) (55). The whole family has been rocked by the news that she has just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She is in hospital and had an op yesterday to drain her bile duct( the tumour is blocking this) They will be deciding how to proceed in a day or two. Being drained by my recovery process from pneumonia I am not capable of going to her as I would have done. The hospital is quite a way away in a different town.I am just sick with worry! Has anyone any personal experience of this? It doesn't seem to be a cancer that many people survive.

Hi I'm so sorry to hear your news regarding your lovley daughter please don't think about how long other people survived with it .

The main thing is to be positive and let your daughter know your being positive for her .

I'm sure as you say the hospital will decide with your daughter what's the best course of action to take over the next few days and take things forward for there .

Also dont get despondent that you cant be there due to your own medical conditions...she knows if you weren't so bad yourself you would be there supporting her in every way that you could .

I hope things are turned around quickly for you all and look after each other even from a distance

Take care of you πŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’ž PS your both very alike πŸ™‚

Lung cancer also has a poor survival rate partially due to the fact that it is notoriously difficult to treat, yet there are a few survivors on here, myself included. So there is room for hope.

See if she can get on a clinical trial, with AZD1775, that is showing a lot of promise:

Lovely photo.peas in a pod springs to mind Aingeful,your Delia will know that your love surrounds her and will be comforted by the fact that you are safe at home while she undergoes investigation and treatment and the wonders of mobile technology will mean you are able to hold hands in a cyber fashion for hopefully the short period of time she needs to stay in hospital.

Sending those positive vibes...Ski's and Scruff's x

Wonderful picture Aingeful, but so sorry to hear your news of your daughter.

My tutor of years ago actually had her pancreas removed and she was thriving back then. There are different types of Pancreatic cancer and of course difference stages of cancer, so a lot depends on what type and what stage the cancer is, if it is contained in situ or if it has spread to other parts.

I am praying for your daughter that the cancer is contained in situ and that the surgery goes well with clear margins and her recovery is good.

Sending you and your daughter healing thoughts of strength and calm at this time and so hope the news you hear is the best it can be.

Luv n hugs

Hello Aingeful . I'm sorry I can't give any practical advice, I don't know anything about pancreatic cancer but I just want to say, the advances in cancer treatment has come along leaps and bounds and I am sure Delia is receiving the best treatment possible. Please heal yourself fully before you go to her. There's no point getting poorly all over again.

Thinking of you during this difficult time.

Love,

Cas xx πŸ™‹πŸ•

Aingeful it is a stressful time for you not only the shock of your daughter's diagnosis but also that you cannot be with her at this time. I pray that the doctors are given wisdom and guidance as to the best course of action for Delia. May God's hands be guiding the surgeons and that you will have comfort and peace at this time. Love, hugs and prayers. xx

You've got mine coming your daughter's way.

Medicine and cancer treatment come on in leaps and bounds so I'm sincerely hoping this is thecase for your lovely Dee.

Looks like a lot of love in your family - do any of you use WhatsApp? You can have a family group, we did that when one year old grandson had a six hour skull op. It was wonderful to get updates, photos and share the love. Also you can video call which is almost as good as sitting next to a loved one - and it's all free.

Wishing the very best outcome xxxx❀

Good morning Aingeful

Sorry to hear your sad news about your dear daughter. As others have said there are now many more options in cancer treatment. Various cancer centres such as the Marsden often have trials where new innovative medication can be an option.

I have a friend who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, they had conventional treatment alongside alternative treatment at the traditional Chinese medicine hospital.

Ultimately they came through, the cancer regressed and that was 20 years ago, they are still doing very well.

Each person is different in what is the best option for them. As always a supportive, proactive and competent specialist can make all the difference.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Take care

Good morning love, so sorry to hear about your lovely daughter, I sincerely hope that the medical team will put in place a brilliant plan to help her get through this. The advancement in cancer research and treatment has improved tremendously in recent years and I think there’s every reason for you to be positive about the outcome. The picture is lovely, and, as someone else said, you look more like sisters than mother and daughter and that’s a compliment to you, not an insult to your beautiful daughter! Wishing you all the best, love and warm hugs. Christine. 😘πŸ₯°XXXXX

So sorry to hear of your daughter's diagnosis. It sounds as if it has been diagnosed while there are still several options for treatment, which is helpful - the survival rate for pancreatic cancer is low because it is often only discovered in the later stages. Sending healing thoughts and prayers her way.
