Topic: My Grandmother was diagnosed the 13th
I'm new here. My grandmother was diagnosed less than a week ago. She's my best friend and I love her TONS. This was a surprise. She hasn't been feeling well and then she turned jaundice. This was Oct. 2nd.
Went to the hospital and the doctor looked at her. He had that look on his face. You know that one where you know they know something but can't say it? That's the look. I've seen in a few times now. Anyway...He suggested tests. They found a blockage.
They did the scope and took a scraping. ( No biopsy because she was on blood thinners) They said it looked like Cancer but weren't 100%.
We said " They said it might NOT be too. Even if it is, maybe it hasn't spread."
They did the surgery to remove the lump and do the stomach bypass dealy. ( I don't know the name of it...sorry. Its supposed to help the bile situation so she doesn't need stints every 6 weeks) The surgery took less time than we were told.
They took us into a conference room. The surgeon wasn't looking right at us.
Its in her lymphnodes. I spelled that wrong. I'm sorry I'm not very good at keeping this all straight yet.
They're supposed to tell us what stage and a rough guess of how much time.
I need to get help on what I should do for her. I listen and am there but I feel like I should be doing more. I'm nervous about what's coming up.
Thanks for your time
