northstar Posted February 16, 2006 Share Posted February 16, 2006 I've come back to edit this 1st post. Big changes since I wrote this My mom saw the onc yesterday and asked him why he never told her she had Mesothelima. As you can see from my post below, last week or so the nurse finally told my mom what kind of cancer shes fighting Well....the onc was VERY confused and said "You dont have Meso! Where did you get THAT idea?" So now we are confused but my mom believes the dr much more than the nurse. She thinks it must have been a simple mixup. I'm exhausted. I've been looking into Meso now since we learned about it from the nurse. I've been researching specialist, chemos etc. My mom and I have been talking about where she could have been in contact with asbestos etc. I was worried sick about my whole family and our chances of contracting cancer from exposure All for a mix up because of a nurse?!? I dont know what to make of this *sigh* (original post) I'd been asking her what 'type' of lung cancer she has since she was diagnosed in July. She didnt know, she doesnt think the dr ever said She called me today after her treatment and told me the nurse commented on her having Mesothelioma. That is infact what my mom has It was a suspicion of mine since the beginning since she worked with cermanics in the house. I never told her the connection, I didnt want her to worry Does anyone know of anyone here who has this? Is it true that it cannot be treated? I feel like my whole family is going to die now. I grew up with the dust in my house as did my sister and my dad Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
