From November 2014, I have continued to have chemo. Initially, I was being treated with FOLFIRINOX, and more recently Gemcitabine. I hadn’t thought of what would happen when I got to my 12th cycle of chemo, or what the future held. 

As a type 2 diabetic I was monitored regularly by my GP. I started to experience problems over a period of 18 months before I was diagnosed. I was convinced the combination of drugs used to treat my diabetes were reacting with my body and causing symptoms similar to that of acid reflux/gallstones. But the GP could not find anything specific at the time.

I was diagnosed in 2009 with operable pancreatic cancer. I was told that I was a priority for a Whipple’s operation. The date was set about 8 weeks from the initial diagnosis scan.
