My Nan and grandad took on the role as my mother and carer when I was 3 weeks old. As my mother didn't want me or my brother. She's my mother hidden behind the name Nan. She's been the best thing to happen to me and my brother. We sadly lost my grandad 5 years ago. He had a heart attack in front of the three of us. He was a very sick man. He had a stroke when I was 8 and had to have his legs amputated due to diabetes . His understanding was not great and my grandmother did her best. I know this is not relevant to her cancer but I gues maybe it contributed. Raising two young children and dealing with 2 alchaolic daughters and a sick husband. She never smoked and she never drank. She was diagnosed with lung cancer 5 weeks after my grandpa was put to rest. We had lost a big part of us as a family. I was diagnosed with a rare condition that causes water on the brain and I needed more help to care for myself and was rendered disabled with curviture of my spine. She pushed through and had half the lung removed. She had 2 rounds of chemo and it nearly killed her. So she stopped. She was in remission 4 years and 11 months. She was coming up to a 5 year milestone and the doctors said if she reached it .. it would be a possible cure. That month she lost her voice . We went to the gp and they kept telling us it was larangitius. We waiting 3 months to see a ENT to which they told us she had secondary throat cancer. Me and my brother have been supportive but I've been terrified. They told us that her lung cancer has spread to lymoth nodes in the lung and her throat and she should try immunetheraphy. So mum did. She tried it for 1 month and saw a shrink in her tumors. But her hair started falling out and she got a painful rash so they lowered her dose and she has been stable for a year now. This past few months she's been complaining of side pain and had gone to AnE for a CT to show no sign of growth. Last night she went to AnE and they said there is a shadow on her liver. They weren't sure what it is and forwarded to her oncologist to view this Friday. If it is secondary liver will they take her off immunetheraphy? Is it the end for us ! I've been reading and crying myself to sleep and smiling and being supportive in front of her
She thinks it will be okay. She goes on holiday for a week in 3 weeks tims. With my brother for 7 days. Do you think she will be alive to see that?. I know no one is a CT scan here or a doctor. I just need some support as we have none. Is the life prognosis for secondary liver cancer really 2 to 3 months !? Also could a CT shadow be nothing ?
