I'M HOPING I DON'T BELONG HERE

Hi Everyone, I'm new here, and I'm really hoping I don't belong.

I've been getting pain just at the front of my waist, and yellow diarrhea. (how do you spell it?)  I have an appointment with my GP tomorrow.

The reason I'm thinking pancreatic cancer is my Dad and Uncle died of it.

Six years ago I had an oesophagectomy for cancer, and I've had my gall bladder out, so my insides are rather unusual, and I do get pain from that, but this new pain is .... well .... it's new.

I don't know why I'm writing this. I'm just a coward.

Hi there,

I know it's hard, but try not to worry. It sounds like you're in the right place now with your appointment tomorrow. There are so many things that could be causing your symptoms outside of Pancreatic Cancer, especially with your history.

Make sure you get a full suite of blood tests (Liver function CA 19-9 etc) and take it from there.

Good luck,

Bernadette
