Re: Second parent diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer

I begged then and then again at every specialist appt after that. Doctor kept telling me that’s his job and not mine. I’m not the doctor.. asshole had he just done them, we would have caught it sooner. Welcome to Canada, where we pay a million dollars in taxes(or what feels it) and the doctors refu...

Re: Second parent diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer

I am so sorry to read your story. My oldest was 5 when my father died, and 11 and the youngest 5 when my mother died. They didn't need to hear details other than Grandad and Grandma were very sick and left us. I felt like an orphan (and still do years later) as I have no blood relatives in Canada o...

Re: Second parent diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer

Cancer is not fair, it sucks. I am so sorry you are going through this. I hope you get another opinion just to be sure everything is being done. My kids were 1 and 3 when I lost my brother to cancer, there is no way to make this understandable. S It’s so unbelievably hard. I’m not sure what other o...

Re: Second parent diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer

I am so sorry and angry. This is truly a nightmare and tragically unfair. My own diagnosis made way for my thirty-ish year old children to be scoped with the hope of catching any cancer early and sparing their lives. So WTF, how is it that this has happened to your mom? Going forward, I do hope you...

Re: Second parent diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer

Hi Tjas1987, I don't have much advice - just wanted to say sorry for the reason you are on this forum. I am your same age and currently in a similar situation (I lost my dad 13 years ago), so I empathise a lot with what you are going through. I know you can feel powerless but please know that you a...

Re: Second parent diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer

Tjas: Any possibility that your parents were exposed to high levels of radon? My Godmother died of metastatic small-cell lung cancer 18 months ago (at the age of 75). Her husband was diagnosed with the same lung cancer (pathologically) a year ago. He is currently on hospice. To add to the complexit...

Second parent diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer

Hey there guys! We just found out yesterday that my mom has stage 4 colon cancer that’s spread to her lungs and bones as you can imagine this isn’t the easiest news to receive. I haven’t told my 10 year old son because I’m unsure how to tell him. They’ve talked to us about pallitave care. I’m guessi...
