My mom has stage 4 non small cell lung cancer and was dignosed 2 yrs ago. She went radiation/chemo. Anyways, within the first year her Dr put her in remission said the cancer that had spead to the brain and right above the kidney area were gone, said the ones in the lung had shrunk. Well, ok remission for 1 year now with 6 months of no morphine or any pills for that matter.
Anyways, I found out today she has had a headach for a week now to the point where she is crying, cant catch her breath, cant walk very far without of being out of breath and sweating real bad and sleeping ALOT again. She wont let me take her to the ER.
Please someone I need help....is her cancer back?!?! has it spread again?!?! is it worse?!?! All the same emotions are bad again..crying, worring, wondering, FREAKING OUT! I dont know anyone who hs ever been in remission and if these are symptoms of the disease making its way back. If anyone has answers for me I would appreciate them.
