Hi, my name is christine. My 93 year old aunt

Hi, my name is christine. My 93 year old aunt was just diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. We are not able to see the surgeon until 11/19-her skin has turned very yellow in the last 2 weeks but not the whites of her eyes. She now has excessive gas that she never had before and does not complain of any pain at all. Is the gas a symptom of the cancer?

Hi, my name is Loural. I am 18 year old and a senior in high school. i do have concerns because have notice I have gain a couple weight (around 2 pounds or so) just by the look of my stomach. However, I started to become curious of becoming pregnant. The reason I became so curious because I have also feeling very little small pain or cramps near the abdomen. I do feel exhausted due to the lack of sleep and school. But I ve had unprotected sex about a couple days ago, but he did pull out before injection. Then recently, I did eat sushi and after it came all back up. I m not sure if it was food poisoning due to raw fish or just the stomach did not agree. And no, i m not on birth control pills. I don t know if it s possible to still get birth control pills just in case?

Hi there. My Nana is 93 and normally healthy. She has been on warfarin for the last few months following a DVT (which has now resolved). She has been bleeding when she passes urine since she started on warfarin, and has spotting/frank bleeds on her underwear but this seems to have increased recently. It is bright red blood that makes the whole toilet pan red and splashed with red. Her GP has apparently done a physical examination in the last few weeks, which was ok, and a UTI swab which came back clear. Today when I visited she hasn t been able to sleep for the last 2 nights because she is so much discomfort from her lower abdomen, says she feels confused and generally ill, and was almost in tears. She is very obviously tired, and seems quite pale, with almost a yellow tinge. Her GP was going to see her in a few hours, but should I just take her straight to ER??
