All was going well except the warfarin she was prescribed which we had stopped because she lost alot alot of blood a week into taking this horrible drug. She was then admitted back into hospital and given a blood transfusion, this gave her a little lift and put some colour back on her face. A few days after she was re admitted in with suspected appendix but a few days later we were told this was not the case and sent home. Pain continued on the right side so were called in for a ct scan, we then received a phone call that has changed everything.....they say she has bowel cancer and it has spread. We are going in today to see the chemo therapist. Can anyone advise us, we feel totally lost and feel helpless, they did say because it has spread they are unable to operate (on the phone)....mum has taken it very bad and she can't eat. Please help with some advice.
