Re: Mother has colon cancer
My mother was diagnosed with colon cancer in April of this year.Unfortunately after a scan in May we were told it was secondary it had spread to the Lymph nodes and into her Liver.
It has rocked my world.Mum started Chemo (trial)and it finished in August it,s been 10 weeks since she has been seen by her consultant!I feel we have been just tossed aside.
She was poorly last week and was sent in for a scan we are due the results tomorrow.
I have contacted the consultant and questioned using other treatments,I know there is no cure and that I will lose her but why is she just left to get on with things?
I have always classed myself a very rational and easy going person,but i have changed dramatically,I don't understand if what i feel is normal,the anger the tears,bitterness,loneliness is it normal to feel these emotions?
Mum's only 60 and has always led a active healthy lifestyle.
I haven't any answers to this dreaded disease that holds no mercy yet i try to be strong.
Take care of yourself,stay strong and above all talk about how you feel.
Thoughts are with you.
