When to tell children your dying?

When do you tell your children your dying?

I have a six year old. My husband and I are arguing over when and what to tell my daughter.

Peri Involvement

I'm leaning away from HIPEC with the advice my cancer would come back. I'm looking for anyone out there who has done some other kind of treatment to help keep their peri cancer at bay.

Signs you are dying.

So I can't find anyone in NZ to give me HIPEC. I continue with vitamin C as my only treatment. It continues to help with fatigue. This is a hard question to ask because I'm directing at those who have watched a love one die. I want to know what signs you got that things were getting bad and then how...

Re: one year of chemo - Stage 4, 37 years old.

I don't want to scare you but ask for a PET for your next scan and look into HIPEC if anything comes back. I wish you a long life.

Re: Turned down for HIPEC

I don't get it either...? All my markers are normal and there is no spread to other organs. I need medical literature to back up my argument. There is only one doctor in New Zealand who does this.

Re: Turned down for HIPEC

Hi Everyone, My doctor has turned me down for HIPEC. Although the cancer is only in my abdominal cavity he said its in too many different places for it to be effective. So now what? Has anyone had good outcomes with ADAPT or oil? My cancer seems to be stable and the only treatment I am doing is vit...

Re: PET SCAN

My Oncologist is giving it to whom ever wants it. I see her privately. But it is not in the public system unless you really fight for it.
