Lots of questions about this awful disease :(


Recommended Posts

We were told on the 1st November of my Mums diagnosis. She had been fit and healthy before developing jaundice. A week later she had a stent fitted which has relieved the jaundice.We were then told that Mum wasn't suitable for chemo as it would shorten what time she had left. Mum doesn't want to know what to expect but I'm finding this difficult. What should I expect?

Hi there shazc1964,

Welcome to the forum on behalf on the Nurses here at the charity, I know that this not a place you would wish to find yourself in but I do hope that you find some support and care here. I'm sure folk will make you feel very welcome. I am very sorry to hear of your Mum's diagnosis, this must have come as an incredible shock and must be such a anxious time for you all. I'm sorry too that Mum is not having chemotherapy.

I'm more than happy to explore the things you highlight further with you and answer any questions you may have. Possibly you may wish to give the support a line a call, the free and confidential telephone line is open Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm or alternatively you can email. The contact information is in the signature below.

Hope to speak with you soon. Sending kind wishes and thoughts,
