For over a year my gran has been back and forth to the hospital having tests. She's had x-rays. MRI's, CT's, biopsies, you name it. They suspected she had lung cancer so kept doing more tests. Then they found a problem with her liver and she had really bad pain in her arm where she can't even lift it. She's always had a cough and hoarse voice. Last week they said they want her to go for another biopsy. This time of her arm. The nurse pretty much told my mum that it's cancer. They just want to see what form it is. If they've found a problem with her liver and her arm this obviously means it's spread. It spreads so quick. i don't know why we've allowed this to go on for so long. If they'd caught it earlier they'd be able to do something. Now this is it. The NHS are a joke. They never ring back. They take forever to make appointments. They take forever to give us results. I know it's not just us. So many others are going through shit but I just can't believe this is happening. My whole family suffer from anxiety/depression. I'm really worried about my mum. She's not coping very well with all this!
