Hugely difficult thing to post about my mum died 9 weeks ago from lung cancer/copd don’t really know she went in with chest infection was sent home with oxygen and antibiotics found unconscious the next day and never regained proper consciousness but there were moments of clarity, I spent the next three days with her in hospital and she died she basically drowned in her own fluid in front of me me and I could do nothing I am obviously very sad but also having horrible flashbacks I don’t know how to move forward

I am so sorry for your loss. I can't begin to imagine how traumatised you must be feeling. Perhaps if you get in touch with Macmillan nurses they can offer some kind of support or counselling to help or to explain things more clearer as to what has happened? I'm sorry I'm not much help but after reading your post I couldn't just scroll past. My Dad is currently on the last part of his journey with lung and liver cancer which has spread pretty much everywhere. He is now in hospital on oxygen and time is not on our side. I'm devasted. My thoughts are with you at this difficult time x
