    Thanks so much beau,

    They said so far that it's not cancer, it's a (GIST) tumour that's not cancerous. But if any tumour is left the cells within it can over time turn to cancer. As far as I know they have not done a biopsy, but they have had many chances to do one when they have done the camera, so she may well of had one done without them knowing even though they would of told them.

    Yes she is deffo anaemic before they found the tumour they gave her b12 pills now an infusion, thanks for the info on magnesium & calcium.

    Also the last Dr she saw was a gynaecologist, we have absolutely no idea why it's a gynaecologist at all because the tumour is in the stomach!. That's who she is seeing again Friday.

    It's incredibly difficult trying to piece the mixed up info they tell us. And we know they will only remember half of what they are told. If how they are started now you would say it's advanced dementia of some sort, but they have been like this at least since their 20's.

    It may well be prudent for them to be accompanied to appointments by someone who can make sense of what they are being told. I know folk are restricted in who can accompany them but it should be allowed if the circumstances are explained.

    I think you are right beau, it's made harder because Uncle cannot go with Auntie, he's either outside or in the cafe. If you have two people who can remember half of what's being said & going on, the chances are they would both remember different bits of the day. But we are down to one.

    If you're diagnosed with dementia there is rightly so a lot of help out there. My neighbour was diagnosed with dementia & you wouldn't believe how many people go into hers every day it's like a revolving door of a large hotel. Very noisy from 8.30am until 9.30pm.

    Right more confusion & general Pi**ed of ness because now you know the you have nothing wrong, that then turned out to be you have a tumour in the stomach? Well now they are saying there are two tumours in the stomach.

    FFS (For Fishcake Sake)

    How the F**k can they get away with treating people like this? Disgusting.

    Now to the muddle of what they can remember.

    It was not the same Dr they saw last time, it was not the op (which Auntie thought it would be) thought that might not of been right. She now has two (GIST) tumours they are still saying not cancerous but who can trust what they are saying we can't!.

    It's a big op, they will take a large amount of her tummy out with the two tumours. She will likely be in there for 10 days. She is not overly over weight but has been told the more weight she can loose the better for the op (she didn't ask why). Was given different tablets to take (she does not know what they are for & didn't ask) They said they are going to try & get her in better shape before the op & if they don't think she is well enough at the time of the op they won't do it. They think it will be in about three weeks.

    Confused? join the club

    Auntie has had another letter, they are going to try & take the smallest one out through the mouth on Friday. I asked if she had the acid to try & shrink it. She didn't even know anything about that at all. Nothing, narda. She has no memory of that being said to her & her telling us. So we have no idea if she has taken it or not.

    Sounds as if she will have a gastroscopy by which means they can remove things. Much better than having surgery.
    She will have to swallow the gastroscope.
