Hi, I'm new here and a little anxious about posting... but I really feel I need some support now, as well as in the future...
In 2021 my mum was diagnosed with soft tissue sarcoma in her leg and had an amputation shortly after to get rid of the cancer in her leg. In 2022 my mum was diagnosed with stomach cancer which spread to her bowel and other organs as well as the lympth nodes under her arms. Unfortunately mums cancer is inoperable and a month ago was given 9 to 12 months left of life with palliative chemotherapy. This has obviously impacted us all. Mum has been in an out of hospital with various infections, ascites and other medical complications.
The future seems very scary right now. I'm hoping that being on here with everyone who is going through this or is in a similar situation to me will help me feel less alone and less scared. I'm trying to cope and not let my family see me upset... my mum has always been the rock and glue in my family and I'm trying to show her that I wont fall apart... even though I feel a part of me is dying with her.
