Postby Kelven » Sun Feb 09, 2014 1:54 am

I'm a new comer to this and I've been searching for someplace to speak with people who may empathise with what I'm going right on through. Our Mother who's 73, had breast cancer 1 5 years previously and 2 times after being granted the all-clear she collapsed with obstructive jaundice. After many assessments etc she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, a brand new principal with no regards to the breast cancer! Therefore in March she'd the entire Whipple procedure, m really did not feel she'd pull-through that whilst the tumor was inside the mind of the pancreas with extremely close prices towards the primary arteries. Following the op it was challenging on her to consume and keep any fat, she was because of begin chemo in January, sadly she was struggling with abdominal discomfort within the holiday time and she'd a CT-SCAN which revealed liver mets. That was 3 1/2 months before, she's currently ceased consuming and has refused chemo, which m total heartily backed her on. She's experienced so much emotionally and physically. The discomfort has become managed my fentinal areas and oramorph, she's not able to go because of her thighs swelling. She'd a hospital mattress shipped athome recently and she stated she's much more comfortable. I hate to see her suffering such as this and I'm driving up and down the nation as l live 6 hours away, I'm off on sick leave from work, but l also provide a household at home who I return to at week-ends. I am an exhausted psychological damage! Nevertheless, I've to cope with that one means or another, any aid and suggest could be greatly received.

Hello jules. Our mother identified 3-week previously, possibly in an identical condition. Nearly collapsed with jaundice. Had a bile duct stent installed. It'd spread to liver however. While pressed the physicians believed 3-4 months to reside. It's hearbbreakin. I reside over the Irish Sea and have a household with small child, therefore I can't be there constantly. It's so hard planning when togo home. She's currently v fragile. Sleeps all of the evening in addition to the unusual hourapproximately. She's ascites. Appears 7 weeks pregnant. She's 78 and only5 rock 11. Although she's placed on 1stone in a week. But I suppose this really is all liquid. Whenever you understand the unavoidable, it's so difficult waiting. For me personally the toughest period was the analysis. I'll be troubled when she moves, she's my closest friend, but I don't need her to endure. Terrible occasions.
Get care.
