Maggie, 70, was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer in September 2016 and underwent chemotherapy.
On 11th October I was told by my specialist nurse that I could not have surgery as the cancer had spread to the liver and it was a difficult operation anyway. I would have chemotherapy and would get more and more tired and weak rather than pain and side effects. Massive shock.

I had a Whipple’s operation, followed by chemotherapy to mop up any stray cancer cells. I was to have 6 cycles of gemcitabine with each cycle consisting of 3 weeks of chemo and one week off so it would all take 6 months.
