Hi everyone, I hope you all are doing well and keeping up the fight! I hope you can give me some words of encouragement. It was just this week that they found a tumor about lemon sized on my mom's kidney and they said it metastasized to her lungs and there are small nodules on her lungs and today they just found (with a CAT scan with radiocontrast) another tumor in her chest and it is pressing on some veins to her heart and making her arms swell up. The Dr's want to give her some radiation to the tumor in her chest alone tomorrow to shrink it but I am so scared and I dont know what to expect because she hasnt eaten the past few days because she has trouble breathing and swallowing. I have never been so scared in my life and I hope someone here can give me some words of encouragement. My mom is 63 and one Dr said he doesnt see this as terminal at all but I am SOO scared, please someone talk with me and tell me some information I may use to help me understand... Thanks...
