Operable pancreatic cancer
16 October 2018
Tom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer when he was 61. He shares his experience of diagnosis, surgery, and recovery.
Before I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, I enjoyed reasonably good health. I did have diabetes and the doctor said I should try and lose some weight, so I started doing park runs and took up cycling.
I was doing pretty well at both and was losing some weight, but then I realised that I was losing it a lot quicker than I had expected.

On the 24th January 2018, out of the blue, I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Up until the New Year I had been feeling fine. I had just enjoyed a lovely festive season with friends and family and everything seemed normal.
