Re: My Mum - stage IV

Hi Ruth, sorry to hear about your diagnosis, but glad that you respond good to the tratment! You are of course true - only once you get the diagnosis and you put all the symptomes together, than it makes sense. But they are too vague to prompt immediate action and any easy explanation is always avai...

Re: My Mum - stage IV

Just a quick update: I spoke to my mum's GP today, she went in for lab test and was sent to local hospital. Don't know much at this point in time, as we are still waiting for test results.

Thank you everyone for your kind support!

Re: My Mum - stage IV

Hi Mo, thank you very much for your comforting words - I really needed them :) I would like to tell you that my mum had really good quality of life in the past months (since on chemo).

Re: My Mum - stage IV

Hi, I'm trying to convince my mum that she has to go to GP like now. I still have some work to do around that... Hospital where mum receives chemo is two hour drive away, so we would first go to GP and/or if needed to local hospital. Sorry if my initial post was "strange" - I do know everyone is dif...
