Mum just diagnosed. Not sure what is happening ☹
My mum has been seeing a liver consultant for a couple of years after she was diagnosed with cirrhosis. She had been having regular check ups and everything seemed fine. Then at the start of the year appointments for an MRI and CT scans came through, which seemed odd.
She saw her consultant first week of February and told mum she had liver cancer and there was nothing they could do for her. We were shocked at the news.
She then saw a liver surgeon who ordered a biopsy. The results came back showing the liver cancer (one definite lesion, 2 possible lesions) was secondary and they believed it was colon cancer.
She had a PET scan and ,colonoscopy 3 weeks ago and the doctor who did that said there was one polyp 20mm in size that was 'probably' malignant and that went off for a biopsy.
We are still waiting for the biopsy results to come through, so essentially 3 months since she was first told she had cancer.
Our nerves are pretty much shot to pieces!!! I am hoping the results will be in soon because the not knowing is probably worse than anything.
I am scared but staying strong for her as we have no idea what to expect next.
I will no doubt be on here a lot and will have lots of questions.
