my mother in law was diagnosed with PPC 2 years ago, she has undergone 2 courses of chemo and now is on her third which is a smaller weekly dose.
Its hard to get any details from her so I can research on the internet as she is just so terrified she wont even ask her own doctor.
She had been told it hadn't spread but was like cobwebs that were reaching outwards, it had lightly attached to her womb so she had a full hysterectomy and the last time they said there was a small part attached to her bowel. She suffers with a lot of abdominal swelling and has been to the hospital several times with crippling pains that subsequently they found to be constipation due to a small part of bowel that had colapsed down due to the void left from losing her womb.
Even though the doctors have said her blood test numbers are good, they said there are still 3 small spots there. However because of the cramps and pains she is absolutely positive she is going ot die this year.. and I feel she is losing hope. It is making her worse I think, because if she gives up I worry she will get so low that the treatments wont help.
I really want to be able to give her some hope and so would love to hear anything that I could tell her that would give her some positivity back. It would be wonderful to hear.
Thanks in advance
