What to expect? Stage 3 Diagnosis

Posted , 3 users are following.

This week has dealt my family a huge blow. My amazing mother hadn't been feeling 100% and since she is a nurse she did the right thing and booked an appointment with her doctor. Well, to cut a long story short, on Thursday she was diagnosed with stage 3 pancreatic cancer.

It was such a huge shock to us, mum has always been the most healthy person I've ever met, she has always been vegetarian, if not vegan, she's super active, goes horse riding, and now this.

She was meant to have surgery but further tests showed that it had spread more than first thought. Mum will be going to hospital for Chemotherapy this coming week.

I just don't know enough and would like to know what to expect?
