Hope you are all well.
My situation is that my mother had been feeling unwell and terrible headaches for a week and we went to the hospital and they told her it was a tension headache and to sleep it off but things got even worse so we went up on Monday and she had a CT scan and they found 2 lesions on the brain and an MRI the next day showed 2 lesions on her lung as well.
She has been in hospital for 5 days now on a course of steroids, anti-sickness and pain killers 3 times a day which have provided great relief from her headaches almost instantly but we have just been waiting now for 5 days and have finally been booked in for a biopsy on the lung on Monday and they are waiting for the neurological until at another hospital to review her case on Monday and come back to us.
She seemed so ill in the week running upto the hospital admission but now she is eating, laughing and joking and seems back to her old self.
- My mum had no symptoms of lung cancer at all and the headaches and sickness were the first sign of anything - is this a good or bad sign?
Thank you for reading and any help/advice will be greatly appreciated as I am worried sick and we are not getting a great amount of detail from the hospital?
