My name is Stefanie and I'm 24 years old. 3 years ago my mom was diagnosed with colon cancer. they got her into surgery and said they removed it all and there was only a 25% of it coming back. It came back all right, now she's had another surgery and the doctor's say there is nothing they can really do exceot buy her time with chemo (she's in the 4th stage now). She has chemo every other week and it makes her so sick that she can't eat, drink or walk for 3 days. Its so sad to see such a strong women in that state.
Today I found out that the aggresive chemo isn't really doing anything, it hasn't grown but now her kidney is infected and she has to have another surgery.
My grandmother died last month of colon cancer and all I could think about was this will be my mom one day. I keep trying to think of life without her and it kills me inside. I want her to be at my wedding and see her grandchildren. Cancer is not fair!
How do people deal with this? i'm having anxiety attacks, my whole life is in shambles and i feel i'm losing everything around me.
Can anyone relate to this. please help me understand, i don't know what to do!
