Its been 9 months since my mm passed away.
Her bowel cancer spread to Liver (twice) to lungs and then back to bowel.
We were aware of these as they showed up in the regular scans she had.
She had several chemo treatments.
Near the end she started to walk with a definite stoop to the left.
A scan of her head at that stage showed several tumors in her brain.
Mm opted for Radio therapy BUT were we told she had less than 2 weeks to live and lasted 8 days.
As a Family we approached the hospital to ask why these were not found earlier,
we were told that bowel cancer doesn't normally end up in the brain, so no scans of her head were ever taken.
I know we were chasing or tail in trying to keep on top of the cancer but hey one would think that when cancer is in multiple organs a COMPLETE scan would have been done each time.
