    Hello everyone. We went for mum's scan and she has a benign tumor on spine. Which is why mum was suffering with the pain. The doctor said that we have to wait 3 months and then mum will have another scan to see if it have grown and what the next step will be. Mum also was told by a different doctor that she has a slightyly enlarged heart.
    Yesterday mum had an Dementia turn and was so scared she dident know who any of us was. But today she is feeling much better.
    Thank you to everyone who asked about my mum. It's lovely to know People care x.

    I suppose all you can do is wait and see? Hopefully, they can give your mum something to ease her pain, in the meantime?
