Hi there, I understand your feelings of being cast adrift without answers. It's not fair to expect you to know when to ask for hospice help and I would imagine that things need to be put in place for the future now. I would ask her Gp for an appointment in which to discuss all the questions you have, your own doctor may also be helpful if you explain what's happening. I would also check to. See if there is a Maggies center in your area as they give invaluable help with allowances which could be claimed and point you in the right direction with many other queries. A phonecall to macmillan is hugely supportive..
Your mum may well have future oncology appointments, perhaps you can go with her and they can shed some light on the situation. I hope that things become clearer for you, make a list of all your questions as they pop into your mind as I know from experience you will forget when there is someone who can answer them. You may be surprised to find your mum has been referred to the appropriate teams, but you need to know for sure. Best wishes, Pam x
