    Has anyone dealt with this? cancer returning or to a family member that is.

    My mom had breast cancer 8 years ago, but she got rid of it with surgery & chemotherapy.

    Now she's in her late 40s and today we have discovered that she has a bone cancer in the ribs. I'm going to travel with her to a treatment center for 3 days.

    It's alright, I just feel uneasy until we go there and we can understand how bad it is.

    Sorry to hear that man. Ive had two close family members pass away from cancer. Its the ultimate mother fucker on this earth. Just be tough for her and remind her that the her strength is more important than anything.

    I always told my uncle, that even when he felt like he couldn't be strong for himself to be strong for his kids. It always helped him snap out of his depression when things got bad.

    But again all I can say is I hope you guys get through this. I wish you all the best.

    Sorry to hear that, man. Don't really see eye to eye with you politically, but will pray for your mother and your family, whatever that's worth.

    Thoughts are with you. Nice that you are such a supportive son. I know that will help her get through whatever comes her way.

    I thought my dad was going to go but apparently not. I guess work. :facepalm: Can't let her go alone, it seems pretty scary.

    My sister-in-law had breast cancer. It came back about ten years later and many years have passed and she seems to have beaten it. Best of luck. I hope it all works out.

    Yes. She will need you. Just focus on her getting better and not all the other stuff (or ppl).

    my wife has worked in a radiation oncology office for 25 years and sees it from time to time
    where it returns somewhere else.
    hope she will be alright.

    I suspect if Howard Stern gets cancer he will have thick black hair all the way through chemotherapy.

    Your in my prayers tonight buddy.

    yes, my mom went thru breast cancer many years ago, and she is a survivor. Watching her go thru chemo was so tough. She would get super sick for 1 week, just sick the 2nd week, and feeling ok the 3rd week BAM then it's time to go back for another dose.

    It was so scary, I always saw my mom as a pillar of strength. But cancer can make anyone it's bitch.

    Pray, and just "be there" for her. I feel for ya buddy....

    Sorry to hear.

    My mom is going through treatment at this time as well.

    Please look into Immunotherapy, which seems to be working a whole lot better than Chemotherapy ever did. She is doing a whole lot better with the Immunotherapy.
