My mother is diagnosed with cancer

Hello everyone, my mother this week got the results that kidney, stomach and ovaries are infected with cancer, I think that in this forum are doctors that can tell me the probabilities of surviving and suggest me the best hospital based on your own experiences to treat this case. Thanks in advance!

    Hi Lef,

    So sorry that your mother and you are going through this! As far as I know, there are no doctors on this forum--it's for patients.  However, you may get some information from patients as to their experiences and some suggestions.

    It might be helpful to let people know generally where your mother lives.  xx

      Hi Lef, I to am sorry to hear about your mother . My mother has been receiving treatment at Southampton general hospital it is a fab hospital with a cancer research department which is second to none in the south of England . You can look at their work on line . Best of luck to you and your mum x

  • thanks for answering Lynda,

    We live in a small country but we can travel, all we need is the right suggestion. Hope there will be someone who knows more about my case.

      Has your mother been referred to an oncologist by her doctor?  Has the cancer been biopsied?   Your mother might be able to travel now, but cancer treatment is really debilitating, so at some point, travel may not be possible for her.

      What you can do for her now is to assure her of your love for her and begin to help her as much as you can.  She is probably reeling from this diagnosis. xx

      Actually she is doing the final examination in Turkey, Acibadem Hospital. Cancer hasn't been biopsied yet. All i want to know is that, is there any other hospital which is more specialised for this kind of cancer? Love is not enough to keep her healthy, unfortunately

      It's true that love isn't enough to keep her healthy.  Taking action is important. But by assuring her of your love you are supporting her soul.  

      I hope and pray that you get the answers and medical care that she needs. xx

They sent her straight to hospice cuz she couldnt even eat it was already too late for pallative care. They gave her 2 months she died in a week and a half. If your mom is strong for chemo im sure shes good. Ny grandma wasn't
