Topic: Looking for some hope
My mother, who is 46 was diagnosed with CC in August. She was told that it was stage 4, terminal. She had a total of over 10 tumors, the largest (9.6cm x 9.4cm). She has been receiving chemo (1x a week for 3 weeks/1 week off) since August and has had one CT scan about a month and a half ago. The results came back with "great" news. The largest tumor had shrunk 50% and some of the others had shrunk so much that they didnt even show up on the scan. She still had between 5-6 and will get an MRI in the 2nd week of December. She was originally told that transplant was not an option and maybe not even a resection because of the where the cancer was located. It has spread to her lympnodes, but no where further. I was hoping that someone had a similar story and what their outcome was/is. I hate the unknown of whether or not she will survive this and how long do I have left with her. I can't lose my best friend.
