It sounds like your mom is getting great care at Memorial Sloan. My sister, on the other hand , I feel is getting terrible care but she loves and trusts her oncologist and refuses to go for a 2nd opinion. She was diagnosed at the end of September with metastatic (to bones and nodes) intrahepatic cc and put on GemOx. She's lost 25 lbs, is completely fatigued, no appetite and no quality of life. Diarrhea so bad that she is in depends. It just doesn't seem right. Has anyone had this sort of experience with Gemox or other chemo? She's had 4 cycles so far and just gets so sick from it. How do I know the chemo is working?
I am so frustrated! Any and all suggestions are welcome!!
