This is the first time I am writing on this board.
My mom was diagnosed with colon/rectal cancer this summer.
She underwent months of radiation and chemo.
In the beg of Oct 2010 she had the tumor removed and had a colostomy bag.
In Jan 2011 she was going to have the bag removed, but they found a spot on her lung in a pet scan.
I guess she also had a scan of her lung in the summer of 2010, and since has grown double its size.
The colostomy bag surgery has been postpone, and she now needs lung surgery in the beg on Jan.
They said that they think it might be the colon/rectal cancer spreading.
My mom has no one to talk to ,, and I no long have any answers..
In 4/2010 my father passed away from mesothelioma.
I have having trouble cooping with this all, and I am terrified..
Can someone please share there experiences with me…
I feel trapped in a world of uncertainty right now… please shed some light!!!
