    Hi @CatLyn64 I hope you enjoy being part of the Community. If you have any questions please ask. My best friend had pancreatic cancer and it was a journey. Do you have any friends or family that can help with your loneliness? You can chat on the site anytime there is always someone about. Take care.

    Hi  @CatLyn64 You have taken the first step by reaching out to the Scope Community. Can you speak to your GP about your fears ? Is it still early days that you are classed as recovered, are you still having follow up appointments? I am so sorry you feel scared , but you are opening up about it and that should help. Take care.
