Kate shares her story of being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2018. She has had FOLFINOX chemotherapy and Nanoknife® treatment.
I first went to the GP in Feb 2018 as I had been experiencing more heartburn than usual and had pain in my back at night. I was prescribed omeprozole, told I was constipated and to buy some lactulose.

Peter shares his experienceof being diagnosed with locally advanced pancreatic cancer in October 2018
While drying the plates one afternoon I felt a sudden dull pain in my right-hand side. I lived with it for a couple of days and as soon as it arrived the pain disappeared. I reached the conclusion that something I’d eaten previously had reacted adversely with me.

Margaret was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2017.
In January 2017 I went to my GP complaining of stomach ache and difficulty with acid reflux. I do have a Hiatus Hernia and a history of polyps, and so a colonoscopy was due. The colonoscopy was scheduled for April – by which time my stools had turned yellow and were frequent, and my weight continued its downward slide.
