Dana L Posted February 16, 2014 Share Posted February 16, 2014 So.... My mom was having back pain since September and after seeing numerous doctors they said it was sciatica . Well after this week the pain was so bad she had an MRI which showed spine lesions. We took her to the ER and after tests our world was rocked when a CT showed hot spots in her lung, liver, and bones and two lymph nodes. Her primary doctor said I told you so bc she is a smoker and said the only question I should ask the oncologist was how long she has to live. Totally unacceptable to me. I felt like I was just given my moms death sentence. After speaking to a friend who is a nurse at fox chase she told me stage 4 is not a death sentence, while yes it's ideal to catch early treatments can offer long quality of life. Basically I just would like to hear some encouraging words.... We are ready to fight and will not take no for an answer Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
