Wayne’s Story

Diagnosed 11 years ago with UC. Went thru all the hoops and daily challenges, UC is now in remission according to my GI. But now am facing a bigger challenge, that being pancreatic cancer, GI says to stay on Humira until oncologist decides on a treatment plan. In the meantime have had tests done on lungs more blood tests just waiting to see what plan oncologist has come up with. In the meantime the diarrhea is the worst ever.

    I’m so sorry Wayne ,
    Try to breathe take it one day at a time..
    It’s hard for me to say that because I’m not very happy or acceptance of my condition.
    But I’ve been trying..
    Just cross your fingers… I would be scared little cry baby..Lol
    Good luck and I’ll keep you in my prayers.
    I hope to hear about your updates..

    I cared for my husband through pancreatic cancer. It is a tough road but hopefully you have a good medical team. How is your nutrition managed? That was the worst part, beside the pain for us.
