Topic: Mum was diagnosed about 3 weeks ago
My mum (52) was diagnosed with unresectable CC about 3 weeks ago. She had turned yellow, that's why she went to the doctor and why the made a scan.
Since then she has had to procedures to insert 2 stents (metallic), to help with the draining of the bile.
She has one metastasis in the liver.
She started chemo yesterday (Oxaliplatin), I have no idea if it will work.
I am having a lot of trouble coping with this, so I guess this is why I am here. I tyr to be strong in front of her but when I get home I just can't help it, I feel sad and scared. I'm having a lot of trouble accepting it and can't get it out of my head. Prognosis doesn't seem to be great with this disease and I can't get it through my head that she won't be here for as long as I thought she would. She's the best mum ever.
Anyways, I have read a few of the postings and it's helping, so I hope this will make me feel better.
