They also told here because she got turmour it could be from that as she got bowel cancer for the first time when I listen to my mother telling me I here'd how scared she is in her voice I never forget. She been so brave and taken everything what's been thrown at here. My head been racing is she going to die now or is this the start of it I'm in bits I don't know what to do.she told doctor she don't feel bad she got little pain. She still eating and drinking I'm just looking for signs. The doctor told here to stay in bed and no lifting I can't get it out of my head hearing here voice she was so scared. I got the phone by the side me just hoping she don't phone to say it's gone worst. I have txt here she said there nothing so far she even scared to go to toilet.

I just wish they can do something for here wishful thinking.im so angry in the way she been treating my head feels like it's going to explode it's so hard when you can't do anything just be there is so hard I feel so angry where have the doctor been all this time they have left my mother to long we wouldn't be in this mess.
Im sorry about your mother.
Im terminal myself, and even though I had pretty much surrendered and made peace with my fate, watching my body breaks down slowly and horribly is a really really really scary feeling, so I think you are right about your mom's feeling.
Most of the time i keep my most horrible symptoms to myself as I don't want to upset my loves ones (also I don't want to see any hysterical reactions - its a pretty stressful to be honest). But some times, opening it to someone that is strong enough and understanding enough to remain calm, compose, and positive, really really really helps me in relieving my fears.
So im pretty sure that listening to your mother's story is doing her a lot of comforting and lot of help which is very very very good
In the same way, just vent your worries on us here, the community is here to listen.
Thank you so much joyfulofjourney for you kind words and advise.we don't live far from my mother I was going to walk up to her but she stopped me not to walk with baby it's to cold to bring him out that my mother for you always putting others first. Got to wait for my partner finish work and take me up just txt here she said she ok she just had food. Sorry for your situation as well hope you feeling ok thanks again x
Hi Gemini, very sorry to hear of the most awful situation you are facing with your dear mom. I really have no words but I know you will be there for her as much as possible. That's really all you can be right now, it's hard to accept but it's out of your control. I am no Dr but I should imagine blood in the stool would be a common symptom in bowel cancer.
You are both in my thoughts xo (hugs)
Thank you Antoni seen my mother last nite she was ok. Just had phone call she been rushed to hospital early hours this morning she was hemorrhage. The doctor seen here they told here it's not her bowel. She haven more tested done to find the cures my head racing .

Thanks again for you kind words x
Just update on my mother she been treating for the bleeding she on hormones cream it's nothing to do with bowel cancer . She came home yesterday spoke to here on phone she ok. What few days it's been hell still bit upset because they can treat this but not cancer is so upsetting I'm trying to be strong it so hard I wish someone could turn around and say we can treat you if is just to pronglong her life there nothing that makes it so hard to ecpect. I been reading about bowel trailers that no good because it's in her blood.then I been reading about different things on the Internet they seem to good to be truth I'm just stuck again. If anyone have tried different things they self I would really like to here from you.
Ten years ago I lost my mother to breast cancer which spread to her brain. I know what you must be going through; It's so hard watching someone you love suffer from this cruel disease. I have never felt so helpless in my life for there was nothing I could do to stop the cancer. When I was young, she always helped me get better when I was ill but I couldnt do anything to help make her better. Alltogether I have now lost ten family members to cancer and have had prostate cancer myself so I know what it feels like from both sides of the fence I lost my father who lived in Canada and brother in law (who like me lives in the South of England) at about this time last year both to prostate cancer.
I count myself as being very lucky to have made such a good recovery so thats one reason I spend time on this friendly forum.
Sending kind thoughts and best wishes to you, Brian..
I'm glad that it's something they can actually treat and not related to the cancer itself. But what a huge strain this must be on you and the family.
I can only send best wishes to your precious mom and to yourself for strength during this awful time, Antoni...
Thank you so much for you kind words . Yea it's been tough for my mother last few days only wish they could treat the bowel cancer I still can't get my head around it that there nothing they can do . Thanks again
