Hi everyone, today we got my dad's diagnosis of pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Up until a few weeks ago he was very well and healthy. I am a cancer scientist so I had a good idea this diagnosis was coming so for the last few weeks I have been at rock bottom. I am also angry and frustrated at how long the whole process has taken (7 weeks since initial scan). Right now it feels like life isn't really worth living but I hope this will change one day. Sending lots of love to everyone here who has to go through this horrendous process.
It is always difficult when there is a cancer diagnosis of a close family member. I think the important thing just now is to be a good support to your dad and to be with him when he wants that. Just go with the flow and take one day at a time. And, please take it from me that you will in due course feel that life is worth living again.
