I've been looking online for a while to get answers for this, but decided to once again come to this board, who seem to know A LOT!
My mom has had 2 chemotherapy treatments, the last one was Tuesday (5 days ago)
She has had so many issues thus far, even before chemotherapy. Fluid build up in abdomen ( now drained weekly) VERY swollen feet, stent issues, severe fatigue, etc.
But recently in the past two days she is very short of breath even after just a trip to the bathroom. I always jump to worst case scenarios, but I'm wondering if it's the cancer spreading to her lungs, or a side effect from chemo?? Maybe this is common.
Also, I'd love to hear about the progression of this cancer, which is impossible to find online. I realize everyone different but what happens? Spreads to liver, abdomen (she's there) then what? Typically?
Any answers would be greatly appreciated!
