    Hi all we went to see mum's mcmillan nurse yesterday for answers cos we didn't understand the lmyth nodes bit...she was very helpful and told us from the 1st scan to the last inevitable mum had they had changed in size and shape..and that even though her biopsies are coming bk none malignant they are sure it's in mum's nodes...mum also has a nodule in her lung which has stayed the same...so now we have to wait for a scan on the 20th December to see what's going on...if the lung nodule is still the same then they will give mum radiotherapy...but they say it's not a cure it might just slow it down...so now I hope and pray that the nodule has stayed the same...I think I'm starting to understand now x

    Hi all just thought I would write a post let u know how my mum.is doing...as u know my mum had to stop chemo as it was making her so poorly...so all we thought is that we had quality time with mum....we went to see Dr Jane mum radiotherapy nurse but because of 2 ereas of concern we had to wait 3 months to see what was going on with the nodule in her lung and the lmyth nodes in her chest...cos she said if it was gunna grow or change they would now then....well mum had her scan 3 weeks ago and we all went for her results on Tuesday...and we had the best news...mum's lmyth nodes are normal and the nodule in her lung as stayed the same..she has to have another scan in 3 months just to keep an eye on her...and I know she not out the woods yet but it's just fantastic how far she has come....so everyone that's fighting please keep fighting and try stay positive xxxx
