Topic: Recently diagnosed.
My mother was diagnosed with this disease on December 1, 2006. We were told that she had less than three months to live as she is too old (89) for surgery or radiation.
We live in Toronto and we have already set up palliative care. I will provide more information later but I do have an initial question. At the time of diagnosis a stent was put in to reduce the jaundice which seems to be working. My question is since than my mom has had none of the symptoms of the cancer. Is this a short term thing or is this something we should be encouraged with. Any reply would be appreciated as this is new to us as I am sure it is new to a lot of people.
