Re: Mom With Recurrent Cervical Cancer
First I wanted to say how sorry I am that you and your mom are facing this diagnosis. I'm afraid I don't have any info on what to expect with this type of cancer but I DO have a suggestion if you haven't already done it - request a referral to your local hospice and get your mom signed up now. The nurses there will have very likely had experience with cervical cancer. My 47 year old sister was diagnosed with liver cancer (mets from saliva gland cancer) on January 2. She died exactly three weeks later. I (and she) couldn't have survived it without hospice. Their whole focus is on keeping the patient as pain free as possible. We had home care nurses, pastors, councilors, medicine and at the end, in-hospice care. And my sister had no health insurance. They did all of the outpatient care at NO charge. Hospice is my new favorite charity to donate to. They are amazing and can guide both you and your mom through this very difficult process. My prayers are with you!
