I'm feeling really lost, worried, and petrified at the moment.
4th September my mum (Helen 66) came into my house and said she would need to make a Dr's appointment as she had a wheeze (deep breath inhale only) inconsistent shortness of breath when exerting herself also the feeling of phlegm at the back of her throat (No problems swallowing, no coughing either). She seen the Dr 8th september who diagnosed Coblestone throat and fast tracked an endoscopy app. Dr also gave my mum a slip for an X-ray as she is an ex smoker. Her endoscopy was clear, the day after the chest X-ray the Dr said there was a mass in her left lung.
Bloods were taken - which were normal and we had an appointment at the respiratory lung clinic.
The respiratory lung clinic app hit me like a tonne of bricks, the Dr pretty much barked at me when I asked a couple of questions and obviously had an issue with smokers and ex smokers.
My mums CT Scan review appointment was today. They are doing a bronchoscopy on a Friday this week with results next Wednesday but the Dr said the Tumor was 5.6cm on her left lung however it was also in her spleen and chest nodes.
My heart is broken here and the waiting is torturing me. Has anyone had similar experience to the above?
From google I know it's a spread and I know it's advanced, I think I just need to feel like I'm not alone.
