I have not had access to the internet past few weeks , and i just wanted to give you an update on my mom. We saw the oncologist and she (the doctor) was very negative. She walked in and told my mom " We are not going to cure you, you are going to die of colon cancer "
I cannot believe it. My mom is so ready to fight and she is doing ok. SHe cooks, hangs out and does not sleep as much anymore. She even told me that since few days ago, she feels so much better, she has no pain and she is eating good.
For those of you who don't know - she has stage 4 colon cancer with mets to the liver. So,m on the 5th of November we have a ct scan scheduled and then she starts chemo. Shei s goign have it once a week for two weeks with a week break. I dont know if this is enough to beat this beast or just to keep my mom alive. I don't know anything anymore.... I fight hard to stay positive , and then the doc walks in and wipes all those hopes away.... I really don't know what to think anymore.
Thanks for listening.
I wish you all well...
