Re: Mum's diagnosis

Brodders don't worry what you wrote was from the heart about your mum. I do understand.
Vanessa if you are still reading how did you get on yesterday? I'm sure it will have been tough. I couldn't even function properly for a couple of weeks after my mums diagnosis.

Re: Mum's diagnosis

So far so good with the first chemo. No awful side effects so far, slight loss of appetite and one bout of sickness at lunchtime today. The district nurse popped in and flushed the line. Mum was really pleased to see her as she felt she was rid of the treatment for now! Psychological I think! Not re...

Re: Mum's diagnosis

Hi Vanessa take a notepad with you and have your questions written down. My mum is 76 so very similar ! My mum was also being sick before the creon. The hospital have given her anti sickness tablets which she takes and this has stopped the sickness. Her GP and hospital where she was diagnosed were n...

Re: Mum's diagnosis

Hi Vanessa thank you for messaging I am so glad I found this forum it helps you not feel so alone. When we saw the oncologist he said 8-12 months and it was me who fell apart not her! I'm not convinced they should give time scales ! My mum is always talking about when she gets better she never talks...

She has her consultation on the 2nd July, line being put in on 3rd and first chemo session on 4th. Am I allowed to ask if anyone else on here attends {name removed - moderator} cancer unit in...

Re: Mum's diagnosis

Hi Jeni the dietician explained to her how to take them so she has been since last Thursday. She is eating a little bit more each day and actually looked a little bit better today! She was moaning at her husband so that is a good sign!!

Thankyou for your support.

Re: Mum's diagnosis

Thank you Mark I have read the links. My mum is 76 so has just made it! I am really worried though that she may not be strong enough! She is very weak and being very sick(vomiting) at present. The weight is dropping off her.
This is just all so dreadful. Sue x

Re: Mum's diagnosis

The oncologist was very nice and very knowledgable didn't really have to ask many questions as he covered everything. Before the appointment I gave myself a good talking to and told myself I was there to support my mum and stepdad and keep it together! So what do I do break down in the consulting ro...

Re: Mum's diagnosis

Re: Mum's diagnosis

Thank you everyone is so kind. I am an only child and am really close to my mum. My step mother was diagnosed with ureter cancer in March and has short term memory loss! My husband had a knee replacement op last Saturday! It is all just so horrible! My stepdad is 84 and this is so awful for him as w...

Re: Mum's diagnosis

Thankyou so much for asking I really appreciate it. I am so scared for her. She is a completely different person. Still not eating, won't go out, said she doesn't feel like visitors (she has lots of friends) not even ringing me up any more. I went round today and she was so quiet, yesterday she took...

Re: Mum's diagnosis

I thought I would feel so happy today after my mum seemed brighter! They kept her in hospital as she was sick yesterday . Went to pick her up today and she was so quiet and low. She said she was sore , but it seemed more than that! She wouldn't even come to my house and sat in the back of the car as...
