Sue

Sue, 53 when diagnosed with pancreatic adenocarcinoma in 2011 - as early as January 2010 I was showing signs of symptoms of pancreatic cancer starting with a change in bowel movements, stomach cramps etc. I also had a very sore mouth. Initially I was diagnosed by my G.P with thrush and a stomach bug.

Trevor's story of his wife Christine, diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2009 - My wife Christine collapsed just two weeks after her 59th birthday. Two weeks later she was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer and was given less than six months to live. We had been married 41 years. I retired immediately to look after Chris & became her full time carer.

I still find that I cannot eat large meals, yet there are times when I do not feel full and am tempted to keep eating but quite quickly go on to develop real discomfort, stomach ache and nausea. I am having to learn to try to restrain myself and stop eating before getting full, have a break and then 'top up' again with a snack a little later.

We're pleased to announce new referral guidelines from Health Improvement Scotland: a positive step forward for earlier diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.

We agree with Eric Ollerenshaw MP - Do you? "I contend that £5.2million [1% research spend] is simply not enough" http://t.co/RLz5csDqcT
