Hi, I am new here so please let me know if I'm not doing this right.
End of Nov 2013 my 35 yr old daughter wasn't feeling well. doctors treated her for a urine infection. She did not get better , beginning of Dec 2013 our local dr sent her for an ultrasound of her kidneys. They found a blocked kidney , she was sent to a urologist who as soon as he saw the results said the kidney was not the problem it was the cervix and would have to get the gyno team to go in after, they put in stents to both kidneys to get them working and then the gyno went in , took biopsy of cervix and suspected cervical cancer. Results came back it was cancer. Two weeks later she was sent to Peter Mac, our capital city cancer centre, and had PET scan. Xmas eve we got the results. STAGE 4B metastatic cerical cancer that had spread to pelvic bone and lymp nodes. Uncureable. We were devasted. Few days later 4 high doses of raditation 2 times a day for 2 days. Two weeks later started chemo. Cistplatin and Paclitaxel. First lot was bad. 5 days in massive infection ended up in hospital for 5 days and had right arm nerve damage. Second lot she handle better for the first week, then right arm nerver damage again that is not settling down. and 11 days in severe swelling in right leg from hip to toes and now they have found a blood clot in the same leg. She has constant pain in her left leg from the cancer and now this clot in the right leg. She can't walk or move .She is in so much pain and today back at dr's was told that the swelling and pain in her leg and nerve damage in her arm will prpbably be permenant. She is about to give up,. HOW CAN I HELP HER AND WHAT ADVICE DO I GIVE WHEN SHE ASKS. HELP PLEASE I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO. Also she has 3 children aged 14,16,and 18.thanks in advance .
