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.

In October 2014 (exactly 1 week before my 44th Birthday) I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I had some odd symptoms, that it turns out that I was very lucky to have, as a tumour had developed in the head of my pancreas. They meant that the tumour was caught early.
