    My mums been told a few weeks ago she’s terminal the cancer is in her lymph nodes the doctor gave her a prognosis of 12 months maximum but all of a sudden she’s loosing mobility. She’s had a few small falls but last night her legs gave out on the stairs and she fell from top to bottom. Does anyone know much about loss of mobility at this stage considering the prognosis is that long. I’ve searched online for hours but the only information I can find is around the later stages. The consultant isn’t very good and she keeps saying it’s ok, it’s normal but to me the amount of falls she’s having isn’t right she’s only 50 and before her diagnosis she has always been fit and healthy.
