And to add on a bit more, there are two tumors. The main one was unacceptable so I guess it was kind of lucky there was a second one. Without the second one we wouldn’t have had the answers we have as number one couldn’t be biopsied.

My mom is dying

by Trtlman - April 06 at 11:08 PM

I registered for this site a month ago after her diagnosis but never posted not knowing what to say. The last few years she’s been having issues with stomach and bladder problems and last year it got to a point she had to see a doctor. A year of seeing doctors and they couldn’t figure out what was wrong. Her stomach and bladder were healthy. They put a bladder implant in her and did a stomach stapling hoping to fix the symptoms not realizing the symptoms were literally in her head. I looked it up after we found out, those are symptoms of brain cancer. Glioblastoma, that’s what we found out last month after she fell and we took her to the ER. They kept her three weeks and she is home now. It’s bad, stage 4, absolutely nothing will help, say your goodbyes you’re going to be dead in a few months kind of cancer. She is on hospice care at home just waiting to die. We decided to skip on any treatment because the pain and sickness it would cause wasn’t worth adding a couple extra miserable months plus if we did that she’d have to be in a care centered a few more weeks. This was her idea and we backed her up on it. I wouldn’t want to prolong it either if I were her. There was a good chance chemo and radiation wouldn’t even help anyhow. What really sucks is first they should have figured this out a year ago and second they were never very straight with us. At one point we’re told she had 1-2 years, then a week later we are told if she does chemo less than 6 months. Since we decided against any treatment we have no idea how long. This is just more a vent post as nothing can be done but to wait for the inevitable. Thank you for taking your time reading this. I’ll keep you all updated if you want.
