I was diagnosed with PC in Feb this year and was lucky to go for a whipples op within 2 days of diagnosis. 6 months of chemo followed, with me being glad to finish it at the end of September. Apart from a recurrent pain in my left side, I felt well. I had previously been told that I wouldn't be routinely sent for a CT scan unless there were any symptoms. So I was quite taken aback when my consultant said I was to go for one to try to explain this pain that I'd been told for months was connected to chemo. I so wasn't expecting to be told that the chemo hadn't worked and that it had spread to the lining of my stomach. I was totally taken aback and didn't ask any questions. I am therefore in shock and dont have any answers to questions that my family and friends ask. I really dont know what lies ahead, other than a new course of chemo I'll be starting shortly.
