Hey everyone... I just found out monday that my mom has breast and today she went to the oncologist. It is in his lymph notes and her left breast as well as in the skin, which they said that part is the inflammatory cancer, so I think she has to kinds of breast cancer at once. She starts Chemo at high doses next week then surgery then radiation. All my friends that know keep telling she going to be just fine with all the technology today and everything. I just don't know what to think. When she came to me a while ago saying she been sore and sometimes she could feel lumps under her arm, I just knew she had it (it runs in the family). I'm not good at expressing my emotions. I just want to cry. I'm so scared of what might happen, even though I am just trying to stay in the now part of it. I am in between jobs right now, so when I am alone during the day, every possibility runs through my mind and I just keep hiding everything and keeping everything inside ( I have always done this unfortionately) plus I don't want to worry my mom about me when she needs to stay strong. I don't know... I guess i just need someone to talk to. What can I expect when the chemo and everything starts next week? Like is my mom going to be really sick all the time and all? Thanks everyoneView Thread
