Sue, 57, diagnosed in 2013 with operable pancreatic adenocarcinoma
In December 2013 at the age of 57 I presented to my GP with symptoms of Jaundice - orange coloured urine, the whites of my eyes were yellow and my skin had a yellow tinge. I did not have upper back pain or stomach pains, the only other symptom I had was recurring indigestion which I put down to eating late or eating fatty food.
