My mother is 54 she has been diagnosed with incurable ovarian cancer. I know she suffers, but i suffer as well. Mom is the only parent that i have ever know. I am afraid of her passing because there are many things I have never learned. I don't want to be alone. I know it isnt right to want mom to live... well its right but its selfish in a way her suffering and all. the doctor told me that the surgery would not cure her... but mom insists on having the surgery anyway for pain relief. the thing is mom's health is so bad the doctors don't think she will make it through the surgery... am i selfish for wanting to avoid the surgery to keep her around a little longer... I have battled cancer 2 other times with her... this is the first one that they said they cant cure... any thoughts or advice...
