Going through my own health issues right now, and yeah...it fucking sucks.Hi everyone. I am not sure why I am posting this here. I just don't have many people to talk to. I feel so utterly broken.
Cut the long story short. My mother went to do the doctors for an x-ray due to a small car accident she had. She had some minor whiplash.
The x-ray results showed small lytic lesion in her rib and 24mm growth in her breast. She was diagnosed with cancer by the doctor.
My mother is absolutely everything to me. She is my life and my best friend. The thought of losing her would bring me to suicide as the pain would be too overwhelming for me. Even thinking about losing her now I'm breaking down in hard tears.
Do you think there's a chance my mother can beat this cancer? Or there's no hope?
She feels absolutely zero symptoms. No pain, no fever. Nothing.
We have to do a full bone scan on Monday, with a mamagran.
I really don't know how to cope with this. I love her more than anything.
Any support or advice would be much appreciated. I feel alone.
The only advice I can offer is once the treatments and therapies start, help your mom make a schedule, a budget and stick to it. It will never easy, but the sooner you stick to the schedule the sooner everything starts to feel normal.
As it feels more normal, it will start to feel easier for her and for you.
