I wasn't sure whether to post this in Daily Life (as it affects mine) or Issues (as it is a serious issue) so mods feel free to move this post.

Some of you may know that my Mum was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2000. She has been in remission ever since but she rang last night to say that she had it again and need further chemotherapy. She is starting her next course in August.

We don't have a final prognosis as yet. I haven't seen any doctors with her. She lives in Essex and I'm in Sheffield sad.gif

I am going down to see her this weekend.

Obviously she is upset and scared as both myself and my brother are.

I just thought that those of you who knew me (and may have known about my Mum) might like to know.

I shall let you have any further information as and when I know myself.

Just keep us posted on what's up. I don't know you or your mother either, but it's never good news, and no one ever deserves it.

Hope you're okay smile.gif *hug* You have one massive mound of bodies trying to hug you right now.

Sam, don't ever lose hope. I have faith that your mum will get through this, and all of you should have too. If you give in to something like cancer and accept it, it will consume a person. I know this from experience with my grandfather. I watched it happen. If I go through that again with anyone else, I would do so much more to encourage them to stay strong and fight it.

*joins in the hug pile* Mmm nothin' like nice warm squishy bodies. Gawd I miss that IRL sad.gif

Lots of love,

Nat.

It's not the greatest news really, but at least there's things that can be done and it was found before it would have gotten worse. The chemo is never fun, it's a horrible thing for somebody close to you to go through.

Much love to you and your mum.

I went down to see her and she was putting on a brave face. I could tell she was scared though. You just know these things with my Mum sad.gif She cried on Sunday morning after searching the net and finding out she only have a 23% chance of survival. I cried too. Not because of that but because she was having to go through this with stupid statistics on the net. She was only looking because a friend of hers (who I thought was a complete and utter dick before all this) told her not to accept what the NHS said and try alternative therapies. He was saying he had been told he needed a pacemaker and defied conventional medicine to do something else, blah, blah, BLAAAH! mad.gif Since WHEN has having a pacemaker ANYTHING LIKE CANCER!!!!! The man is a nob. I told Mum this and told her that looking for alternative therapies is all well and good but she really shouldn't listen to this idiot who has no experience of cancer and, more importantly, no medical training!! mad.gif

She is having a scan on 19th July but they don't think they will see anything. She is also seeing a specialist and she has a list of questions. I said something she could do was to find a board like this made for fellow sufferers of ovarian cancer and ask them what they thought (if there was one). People who've actually been through it and come through or have more ideas. She might not like what she hears but then ignorance is NOT bliss in this situation. I'd rather know the facts however unpleasant than not know.

She needs to speak to the specialist/doctor and she said will soon. I'll let you know more when I know more.

I took Ed with me and he was bloody fantastic. Just mind blowingly supportive and wonderful.

Thank you to all of you for your support smile.gif

geez .. I am very wary when it comes to people recommending altrnative therapies for something as profoundly physical as cancer ... Alternative opinions, fine ... but I still think you are in the realms of _relatively_ standard medicine on that front ... I like the 'forums for people in the same position deal' ... you said it just right ... *crosses fingers* ...
