Re: My Mum

It’s nearly 8 months since I lost my mum to this horrible disease. I’ve had my good days and bad days but I’m really struggling with Christmas coming up. I can’t bear to look at Christmas decorations or listen to Christmas tunes on the radio. I can’t believe I won’t ever buy a card that says Mum on ...

Re: My Mum

Hi everyone Unfortunately my wonderful, loving, caring Mum passed away in 5 April. Not even 3 months after diagnosis. I am absolutely devastated! When she was diagnosed she said ‘I thought I had more time’ and so did I. In a blink of an eye she was gone. Mum got one round of chemo. She was in a lot ...

Re: My Mum

Hi Kerry Thank you for your reply. I did reply to you but some how my reply seems to have gone? Anyway I’ll give you an update. Mum got her biopsy and was very sore afterwards. We saw the oncologist and she decided to delay her chemo by one week so we could get on top on the pain. They increased her...

Re: My Mum

Jeni Thank you for your advice. I suffer normally from anxiety and I normally find it good to have the focus of work to keep me from falling off my perch. You may be right that I need time out as I do feel overloaded at the moment. I’m hoping once we have a treatment plan we can be a bit more positi...

Re: My Mum

Hi Jeni Mum was in for her liver biopsy yesterday and I knew she would be in more pain after that so I managed to speak to the district nurses and arranged for them to come in today. I also managed to speak to the GP and she’s chased up the hospice palliative care nurses who hadn’t yet been in touch...

Re: My Mum

Thank you everyone for replying x it really does make me feel that I’m not alone. Mum was doing well until today but today her pain is quite bad. I persuaded her to take the oromorph the GP gave us.

Re: My Mum

Thank you PW for taking the time to respond. My mum is 76 and has one granddaughter who is 22. I brought my daughter up in my own and I have no partner. I don’t have any sisters or brothers and I have no aunts or uncles for support. So I’m feeling really scared about the future without mum. I lost m...
