im not really sure what I’m supposed to write but I guess I’m just looking for a bit of support and possibly some stories of hope.
My mum has just been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer...she went to the doctor a few weeks ago for blood tests as she was feeling tired and her iron came back super low. Next thing we know is she has a tumour in her bowel and the latest scan results show it has spread to the liver and spots on the lungs. She’s going for surgery early next year for the colon and then starting chemo when she’s a bit stronger and take it from there.
I guess I’m just scared that I won’t have my mum around for long. She was told if she did nothing she could be dead in the next few months... I’m an only child and my parents are my world.
Any advice, good stories or things I can do to help/prepare for the worst would be great.
