Vagina Cancer – Few Months to Live
Dear Dr Teo,
A cousin of mine sent me your website below. http://cacare.com/ http://cancercaremalaysia.com/?s=vagina+cancer&submit=Search
My Mother has been diagnosed with 3rd-4th stage Carcinoma of Vagina. The tumour which started in the rectum has pierced the cervix wall & lodged itself in the Vagina. She is presently unable to walk and is bed-ridden. Her appetite is also not so good and has lost a lot of weight.
My Mum has undergone 30 sessions of Tomothereapy (a form of radiotherapy) in May 2012 and 1 session of chemotherapy on 2nd August 2012. According to the PET Scan, the tumour has been reduced
slightly from the original 4cm X 4cxm. Right now, she is experiencing tremendous pain and there is blood in her faeces & urine due to a fistula. My Mum has been readmitted thrice since for rehydration & blood transfusion.
Doctor’s prognosis is that she will only have a few more months to live at this rate. We are residing in Petaling Jaya, Selangor. Please advise what is the best way I could consult with your goodself, over the phone or should I call you at an appropriate time prior to a possible personal visit (with or without my Mum).
Looking forward to hear from you.
