Cancer

My mother has just been told she's got renal cancer, the tumour is 6cm long.  The surgeon said if she was younger and fitter, he would recommend removing her kidney straight away.  He's giving her a fortnight to decide whether she wants it removed, or to do nothing.  She's nearly 83 and in poor health.  She's shell shocked.  

I've been in tears since sister told me, it's just one thing after another.  But it does put my stuff into perspective.

  11. My mother had two years of treatment for bowel cancer including a colostomy but eventually decided she had enough. Your mother will show great bravery whatever she decides, and will hopefully receive appropriate careas needed. Kind thoughts to her and to you as you come to terms with the diagnosis. X

  13. Sooze, I am so sorry, everything seems to be happening all at once.

    Mum had cancer at 80 but decided she didn't want aggresive treatment.

  19. I'm so sorry that you've had such terrible news. My mum had her kidney removed due to cancer at the age of 69 and has been fine in that department since, but it was a big operation and she did go through a lot of pain. It's a terrible decision that your mum now has to make but I'm sure you'll all help each other through. Sending hugs xx
