little_melody Posted May 30, 2017 Report Share Posted May 30, 2017 Hey guys, my father passed away on the 29th of may .. this is the first real loss of a family member I've experienced and I just feel so lost and confused. I am a med student so uni is super full on and about to go into exams.. My daddy is away for another month with work too.. If you could please share your stories of losing a family member and how you dealt with it, I think it would really help me. I will share my fathers story below:In April last year he had a seizure, and when he went to hospital they found a tumor in his brain. They then found a tumor in his lung & a second tumor in his brain. He received chemotherapy for his lung tumor, surgery and radiation on his brain tumor. Unfortunately, this was terminal from the beginning. He eventually became paralyzed in his left side, stopped being able to walk, became delusional, couldn't swallow and eventually passed away a year and 1 month after his diagnosis. It was horrible watching him suffer for so long and also horrible knowing he is gone forever. If you would like to share your story, please do, I think talking about these things is healthy and it makes it easier since we are all basically strangers xx Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
