Re: My mom

Thanks everyone for all your kind words! Bit of a rushed post this morning as I am getting ready for work. Mom was discharged from hospital on Friday 7th November. She wasn't (still isn't) very mobile and is in a lot of pain, moreso it seems with her back (where the epidural was) than anything else....

Re: My mom

Thanks everyone, mom's op went well. The surgeon says he's really pleased - they only had to remove 30% of her liver (instead of 60%) but they did remove some of her diaphragm as well. We're waiting on the results on that - they are very intrigued about mom's cancer as they say it doesn't act like t...

Re: My mom

So mom is now in hospital. Op tomorrow morning. We spent over an hour at the hospital trying to fix the TV in her room as it was broken, as she was desperate to still watch Strictly, but we showed her how to watch it on her iPlayer so she was happier then. Funny that this was the most pressing issue...

Re: My mom

Nicki - thanks, Mum is fantastic and it really helps me be more positive as she's never let anything get her down, but obviously you can't help worrying. And I'm positive the baby will be born Xmas Eve/Day as my sister has a pechant for drama! We're all set to have Xmas at hers if needs be :) Her su...

Re: My mom

Hi everyone, I realise I haven't posted in a while. To be honest, things have been good and I kind of felt guilty, as so many people don't have good news when it comes to PC. But I was watching Stand up to Cancer tonight (away from home by myself) and got a little emotional so wanted somewhere to co...

Re: My mom

Hello everyone, I hope everyone has had a good Christmas, considering everything. I realise I haven't posted in a while, but I thought I would give an update on my mom. She really is, as her oncologist put it when he saw her a week or so ago, "a little miracle." My mom had her RFA treatment in Septe...

Re: My mom

Hello everyone! Long time no post, so I hope everyone is doing alright and that things are going as well as they could be. The last few months have been very busy for me as I have now finished university. I actually have my graduation ceremony tomorrow! I just wanted to give an update about my mom's...

Re: Finding it hard to cope

Well I said I'd post do here we go: My mom is now classed as in remission!!!! I have no idea how it's happened or what this really means in terms of if it can be cured, but they can't find any trace of her tumour on scans anymore, apart from tiny pinpricks that haven't changed since her original dia...

Re: Finding it hard to cope

Thank you Deb, Catherine and Dianne, your words have really helped me! I feel a little less down today but posting at this early time because it's scan result day today and I can never really sleep. Over the weekend we had a lot of family over, which was lovely, but once I was alone with my boyfrien...

Re: Finding it hard to cope

Hi everyone! I wanted to just post to give an update and also to let a bit of emotion out. The past few weeks have been a little difficult for me. Firstly a piece of happy news: my sister was married on Friday! It was a really lovely day but obviously quite emotional for many reasons. My mom looked ...

Re: Finding it hard to cope

Hi everyone, I know it's been a while since I last posted anything so I thought I'd post something now while life isn't so busy! A lot of things have happened since October - my mum wasn't reacting well to the chemo they gave her - I think it was cisplatin with gemcitabine - she was supposed to have...

Re: Finding it hard to cope

Deb and Sue, thank you so much for taking the time to reply. It's a horrible situation but I'm really glad I've found this place. I made an appointment to see a counsellor today, it's in the morning so I'll see how that goes. I hope it helps because I really want to be able to handle my emotions bet...

My mom

Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum but not new to PC. My mum was diagnosed with it in 2009, but thankfully it was operable and seemed to be successful. She was put onto a year of chemo just to keep it in check, and has had regular scans since then to monitor the situtation. I guess I was starting to...
