On the 4th of July my sister put her hands on my Mom's thigh and asked her, what the heck is this Mom? A lump.
Recently, we were going through the process of getting it checked when she started feeling dizzy and had an irregular heart beat, this landed her in ER. Last night the family went in to talk with the doctor about her heart, and he says, "you all know she had cancer on her thigh"..........
NO! We didn't. We told him a biopsy had not been done.
He says they are pretty sure is Sarcoma, and they also found a nodule on her lungs and thyroid. DAMM! I asked him what were the next steps, and he said "biopsy of course, thought it was done." He went on to say, that its a very aggressive cancer, and it's quite large and she may need to get her leg cut off. Damm!
Phew! So, the next couple of days she is getting angiogram to see if she has a blockage, may need a pace maker. Depending on drugs, that she is put on, they may not be able to deal with the cancer for 1 month to 6 months.
I just went out on FMLA for my chemo and to take care of my Mom.
I am in shock and in shock.........and in shock!
