My name is Helen from South Wales, I am 48 years old and my husband (who I have been with since I was 16 years old) has just been diagnosed with Terminal Pancreatic Cancer this week.
He has been in and out of Hospital the past year with acute Pancreatitis and had recently came home after a 4 month stay which he's had to endure a Stomach bypass, Gall and Lymph nodes removal as well as being on life support for many days only to be given this soul destroying news that the biopsy taken is indeed Cancer and we were told today that he only has 'Just Months' with Chemo as a treatment in the hope of keeping it at bay until his next scan in a months time.
I am very diligent with all the organisation that goes into the treatment and his care plan, needs, signs to look out for, etc but where on Earth am I to go to from here with all these thoughts, concerns, fears and Heartache?...We have 2 amazing adult daughters (26,who have recently given us our first Grandchild and the other who celebrated her 21st birthday just this week) How as a mam do you cope with all this in order to help them???
