Dear Friends, I found this site when I was diagnosed with a rectal tumor and it has been a lifeline to many thru the years.
As some of you may know, I have been trying to help my sister who was diagnosed with stage 4 endometrial cancer last October...mets to lungs. I have been going to doc appointments, chemo treatments, helping with the maze of financial issues.
She has been complaining of leg pain for several months...been to several doctors and had innumerable tests, all diagnosed it as muscular. Today a trip to ER because of the level of the pain and the fact that she can barely walk. The news is not good. They have discovered mets now in the leg and pelvic bone. They admitted her primarily for pain management...she is getting morphine every 2 hrs. The onc will stop in tomorrow, but I am not hopeful. While radiation may shrink the tumors to relieve the pain, the fast spread makes me fear it will soon pop up elsewhere. We were never given any hope other than extending life and quality of life.
Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers and send strenght to our 89 yr old parents who have come to be with her.
