deruo Posted August 22, 2004 Share Posted August 22, 2004 Hi everyone, I stumbled across this site accidentally, but I'm glad I found it. It's a really long story, but my mom went for an xray a few weeks back trying to determine what was causing foot pain. They found "a mass" and sent her for a couple of CT scans. So far, all we know is that they think its cancer, it's been there "for a while" and are waiting for biopsy results. The Dr. didn't mention surgery as an option, but I'm hoping that he's just waiting to see what we're dealing with. As I'm sure everyone here can relate, its been a terrifying experience and I've been a mess since all this started up. Moms in her late 60s and though she's had some health problems, is still a very strong woman. Weird thing is that she never really had a cough until after the first CT scan and had a bad reaction to the dye. Since then, she's okay unless she starts talking. Have other people here experienced/witnessed this? I'm glad I've found you as all I've been able to find up till now is doom and gloom. There doesn't seem to be much of that feeling here.
