Hi all - my mother was diagnosed with endometrial cancer in March. After her hysterectomy in April, it was discovered that part of her specimen has serous cells. Fast foward to today, the day before her first chemo appointment and I've been very finding it very hard to get my mom to talk about how she's feeling. In general, she has never showed a huge amount of emotion but my biggest fear is that she is holding all of these thoughts and feeling in and one day she'll breakdown while she's home. She lives alone....I recently got married but my mom and I have an amazing relationship and so I see her about 2-3 times a week. Anyone faced similar issues? Any thoughts on how to combat these walls she puts up? I'm here for her 100% but just want to do more....please help.
