Just read this in the Guardian, its an excellent initiative and exactly the sort of no frills approach that would appeal to many young men in particular

I just got off the phone with my family from back home.
The cancer has spread to my mother's brain without anyone realising.
Multiple masses.

I'm in shock.

Thanks guys, having to work out emergency flights back, reaarrange everything and organise long distance with my partner.
It's been awful and it's only going to get worse.

My mom's texts have been slurred and off the past few days and I break down weeping each time I read them.
It's horrible.

Terrible news Floppykid - make the most of the time. I lost my Mum a year ago. Came over and spent Christmas with her and planned a Christmas in July. 5 days later back on a plane to spend 10 days with her on DNR after she had a stroke. As gut wrenching as it was knowing we had spent that time at Christmas helped so much.

Especially your Mum.

Ok, so some relatively good news.
It was one tumour and she was rushed into surgery and they seemingly got it all.

It's not a cure all because brain cancer unfortunately incredibly insidious it seems, but it's worked for now and she's still the same person she was going into surgery.

Thankful for what it's given us and thankful for the speed and skill of the surgeon. Amazing really.

Finally, for Bloutoria, please feel free to share whatever's getting you down cause I know from experience I've felt as bad/even worse from things less shocking or more "mundane" than this. It's what the thread's for.

Very sorry to hear it ER.
All I can say from my experience is things can be an absolute emotional roller coaster with the big C.
The doctors and every level of medical staff have been excellent though, so I trust you'll be in good hands.

You'll be licking gee again in no time.

Really sorry to hear that EveryReady. It sounds like you are in good hands and have a good idea of treatment. No better poster to keep positive and motor through it.

Well hell shit and buggery, ER. A poor pre-Easter present, that.

My bro-in-law was handed similarly crap news quite a few years back. He's still above-ground, cancer-free, working (not necessarily a good thing, admittedly) and not talking like a dalek. I hope this turns out to be your story.

Working optional, of course.

Tough news ER - that sucks.
Mate of mine had the same a few years ago, and he's fully clear of cancer, fit and going strong at work now.

There'll be tears, but that's okay. They'll be MadDog tears, and cancer is the French - they may have got SOB banned, but our Ian still beat them :thumbup:

Well that is worrying to hear, mate. Hope it's early and treatable and you can spend many, many more hours being silly here with us ER.

MrJonno, I and I’m sure all of us want to see ER back gee licking as good as ever as soon as possible.
The bored needs zaniness to break up the mundane, and ER is pretty zany.

Best of wishes to you both floppy and ER.

(On second reading that sounds like it’s either their birthday or they are a gay couple who just got engaged so not the exact pithy and sombre mood I was after)

Eeiiiish... best wishes to you both, FK and ER.

Tomorrow is the one year anniversary of losing my father to cancer (and also, because my father had a wicked sense of timing, their wedding anniversary) and my mother has started saying very dark and depressed things, commensurate with the overwhelming grief she is feeling all over again.

Bad times.

My boss had throat cancer about 2 years ago. Was pretty damn serious. She had chemo, radiation, got half her tongue and what not cut out. Shes back at work now, cancer free. Knocked her around quite a bit, she was over weight, now shes underweight, but she is back to living a happy normal life.

Might be a rough journey ahead, but chin up, good chance you will come out of it smelling like roses.
