Topic: progression questions
Hello, my mom was diagnosed about two months ago. She has a large mass on her liver and a non functioning gallbladder. She got a severe infection a month ago and a tube to drain her gallbladder was done. Due to the size of her tumor and her weak heart, surgery is not an option. She tried one round of chemotherapy two weeks ago but got extremely sick. Last week she talked to her oncologist and they agreed to stop the chemo. She started hospice this week.
Right now her medications are controlling her pain fairly well and she is able to do most of the things she wants to do. What I would like to know is what is the normal progression of this cancer? Will she slowly go down hill or could she suddenly get worse and be bed ridden? And no one will tell me how long she has left. I am assuming 6 months or less because they approved hospice care. Could it be less than that? I can't find anything or anyone who will tell me what happens now and what the end stage of this cancer will look like. I need some honest and upfront answers, please. Thank you.
