Re: Mum's diagnosis

Saw mum today and she looked so frail. She's still being sick and isn't eating. She said she has no appetite at all and no energy! I had to go to my dr today as I have sciatica, which I don't have time for, but these things are sent to try us! I spoke to him about mum and he is going to see her tomo...

Re: Mum's diagnosis

Thankyou Sue that explains it as they delayed her chemo by 1 week as her white blood cell count was low. She is going to have injections for 5 days for this. I will see how she is today and ask her if she was prescribed Emend.
Thankyou. Sue

Re: Mum's diagnosis

Mum has had 3 sessions of chemo now but this time it has really taken it out of her. She hasn't eaten for 3 days as she keeps being sick. She is hardly drinking anything either. I keep telling her to drink water but she only has a few sips! When she had her chemo they said one part wasn't prescribed...

Re: Mum's diagnosis

Hi Cate I don't think honesty hurts especially under these circumstances we are all going through! It is all so emotional! Mum went for blood tests today and her chemo has been delayed a week as her bloods aren't right! Thankyou Julia for your reply you are right there is no point chivvying them alo...

Re: Mum's diagnosis

My mum is having her 3rd folfirinox on Friday. She has coped well with the first 2 but they were both reduced by 20%. This one is going to be stronger. She is weak though and seems to sleep more going to lay down through out the day. My one concern is that she never goes out. She hasn't really been ...

Re: 75 y/o Grandma told 4month to live...High BM

Hi my mum is 76 and has been diagnosed with this awful disease. She is now receiving treatment at a cancer unit and they have been excellent. Has your Grandma seen an oncologist? My mum had a stent fitted which deals with the jaundice and she also takes creon tablets to help with the weight loss. Yo...

Re: First Post on here

How is your mum doing? Did you find out if she takes creons? I hope the scan results are positive for her. My mum had her second chemo treatment last week and hasn't had any awful side effects although she wasn't herself today. Trying to stay positive and I am sure you are trying to do the same. Tak...

Re: Mum's diagnosis

Thanks for the reply Deb my mums main problem with food is she hates the creon tablets! She has become extremely fussy and mealtimes have taken over! I am convinced its psychological! My mum is on fortnightly folfirinox chemo which I believe is very toxic! She didn't tell me why they are keeping her...

Re: Mum's diagnosis

Mum has lost a few more pounds! She hates the creon tablets! She won't swallow them as she says she can't! She puts them in apple purée or yoghurt it is really hard work! She says she would eat more if she didn't have to take them. It must be psychological. Has anyone else come across this state of ...
