Mam recently diagnosed
Hi, this is my first time posting here ,
my mam has recently been diagnosed with primary gallbladder cancer and liver metastasis.
They have said it’s serious but treatable but obviously we are all very worried for her .
She is starting chemo soon.
She is 73 and normally in great health but I’m so worried she won’t make it through .
Is this a good sign that they are even doing chemo ?
I wanted to ask the doctors more when we went in for her diagnosis but didn’t know how much to say in front of her .
They did say it’s stage 4.
Does anyone have any words of wisdom to help her and my dad and also how can we help her mentally get through the next while ?
Should we talk to her about it or distract her ?
Just want to help her as best we can .
