catlady91 Posted February 13, 2021 Share Posted February 13, 2021 My mum was a meeting with her team on Monday about her treatment. She's going to have chemo, but it'll be discussed in more depth in the meeting. I'm scared that the doctors will have some other bad news or that they've found something else. I'm scared that they'll be negative and say that the outcome is poor. My mum's cancer has reccured. From what we know she's been told that it's fairly small. I know that my mum will be around for more than a year though as her orthopedic surgeon rang. He read her notes and said that he's going to book her for surgery next year. My mum asked him if she thinks that she'll be around for that long and he said of course! He said that she should stay positive and from the notes they're going to start her on the most standard chemo and if needs be switch it to stronger ones. The orthopaedic surgeon was really lovely and lifted our spirits. I figure that if they thought that my mum didn't have a chance or long left, they wouldn't bother giving her knee replacement surgery especially as it's a long recovery. How do you deal with appointments? Do you still have nerves? LouT 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
