I've not posted on here before, but I've read a fair few posts and found peoples' comments really helpful. My mum was diagnosed with bladder cancer in Feb. But it was contained, and she had 3 rounds of chemo, and was told it had responded really well. So we had a 6 week wait between the end of chemo, and a radical cystectomy (sp) and also a hysterctomy. However, when the surgeons did a quick pre op scan. They discovered the cacner had grown massively, and had wrapped itself round the pelvis, so was now inoperable. So we begin pallative care. I just can't believe we have gone so quickly from being totally finished with cancer, to now being told its terminal. Has anyone else had such a quick turnaround of situations?
Its just such a shock, one minute its almost finished with, and now we have to live with it and watch it get worse. Nobody has any idea re time left. Its so hard
