I am so sorry for your loss. I feel like our community is being attacked right now. We are losing too many too fast.
Your family sounds close and it was wonderful that she was surrounded by you all at the end. It is really the most any of us can ask.
Keeping you in my prayers.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Where your Mom is now, there is no illness or suffering. Let us all pray that a cure is found for this terrible cancer, so that no more people will have to suffer.

I am so sorry your mother lost her fight, it is not a fair fight at all, I can only liken this awful cancer to a freight train that leaves a path of destruction and it all happens so fast you don’t know what hit you. Yesterday was my Mom’s birthday and she is gone 4 weeks today and I don’t see how it’s every going to get any easier anytime soon, my only advice is to cling to each other.

So sorry for your loss. Thak goodness you have family there to support each other. This is a good place to continue connecting with people who have and are experiencing the same things you have dealt with. God bless

Mark and family,
So terribly sorry for the loss of your Mom. How quickly some of the CC patients pass after being diagnosed. It just seems so unfair. I am glad your Mom was with her loved ones as she passed on. Prayers to you and your family.

Just wanted to let you all know that my mom left us during the early morning hours of Wed. Aug. 27th. She was in a great deal of pain for about the last week or so, slipped into a coma early Sunday morning, then left us a few days later. She was with me, my father and my other brother and no longer has to deal with this earthly disease. I appreciate everyone’s help and input on this awful cancer.August 29, 2008 at 10:00 am #21140lisanzParticipant
What your Mom is going through is the same as what mine suffered. My Mum was diagnosed after the jaundice appeared and tests were carried out, and although she was able to have a stent which cured the jaundice she was never able to properly eat again. Sadly she lost her battle a few weeks ago. We too were at a loss at what to do and where to turn, all I can say is take heart in knowing that many of us understand what you are going through.August 22, 2008 at 3:23 am #21139tiapattyMember
Take a look at these prior posts, the second one suggests lactulose as treatment for the hepatic encephalopathy:
PattyAugust 22, 2008 at 1:22 am #21138
My mom’s speech has been slurred, she’s been a little confused and agitated. The hospice nurse says she’s got a build up of ammonia from Hepatic Encephalopathy which damages the brain.
1-Is this common for this kind of cancer?
2-If so, what else can we expect?
3-Is this a sign of things coming to and end?
If anyone has experience with this, I would like to hear from you about it.
