Hi all, ive joined here to ask for advice re my mum, however im unsure if this is the right place!
My mum was diagnosed after years of battling with IBS!!! Exploritary ops abd ca125 count revealed nothing until full hystorectomy revealed the devil! Back in 2008, she had her first chemo and was clear for 15 months, since then she's had 6 further cycles of chemo, with varying results and time between them.
Last March we were told that she had maybe a year left, was given more chemo even so, going back in Jan things had progressed so her onc refered her to Royal Marsden for a trial (onyx) we've just found out it was unsucessful and has up to 2 months, if tumours strangle the gut it may be weeks, we are all so devestated but mum is adamant that with the steroids theyve given her (to build herself up!!) that she may be able to have more chemo.
I feel so evil even thinking this let alone saying it but i can no longer cope, we are a close family and live a minute walk from eachother, but for years ive seen her lay on the sofa just staring, doing nothing and my soul is destroyed, she has finally agreed to mcmillain, no mean feat!
I guess i just needed to vent, im sorry to bring all you amazing positive women down x
