My mum had lung cancer, so far we know, that they are unable to operate, but she will be having chemo. My sister has just spoken to the nurse mum saw yesterday (we were given her card should we have any questions) and as of yet they haven't staged the cancer. the oncologists are having a meeting monday and we should hear on tuesday about the begining of treatments.
Im sorry to hear about your granddad, disenchanted. we are still waiting for the results of the bone scan and she still needs to have a mri scan done. I feel like a rug has been pulled from under my feet.
we have spoken to our gp this morning who explained that as they are unable to operate then there is no 'real' chance of her going into remission, and that all they hope is that the chemo will shrink it and make her as well as possible, our gp has said that there is counciling (sp) available should we want it. its hard trying to get our heads around everything, it feels very much like it is happening to someone else or as if you are 'looking in' on someone elses life,
Trying to 'act normal' for the kids is getting harder, we have all decided that until they start mum on chemo we will not say anything to the dc's, thats all they know at the moment is that grandma is not very well. so to them it is very unfair of us to cancel our big family holiday.
