I am so sorry for your loss. It must be so tough losing your mother. I go through my up's and down's with my mom. Some days I am very strong for her and some days I am weak thinking about what our lives would be like without my mother. I am caring for my mother now age 77 with Stage 3A rectal cancer. I have been trying to be the best advocate, nurse, caregiver, etc. for my mother. I found her a good surgeon at USC but still worried about the pain that she is in following radiation.
If there is any advice you can give to me, please share. thank you and god bless <3
