    Hi Raggy01,


    I’m sorry to hear about your mum. As we are not health care professionals this is not something we would be able to answer here on the Community.  Generally a doctor or district nurse who is involved in your mother’s care would be able to discuss her prognosis in more detail with family members and help you understand what to expect.


    There is information here that may be of some help to you. If you would like to talk about any of this please call our Free phone Support Line on 0800 090 2309, or drop us a line via Web Chat: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help


    Best Wishes
