Just thought I would give you an update on my mother. Unfortunately, the CT Scan showed more small tumors in the right lobe of the liver. The doctor said it looked like the larger tumor had been "damaged" though. My mother has not been the same since she finished the dose pack after the procedure. She is very fatigued and nauseous every morning and sometimes throughout the day. She has asked the oncologist if this is due to the cancer or the procedure and he says probable both.
The radiologist wanted to go ahead and do the procedure on the left lobe also, but she decided against it since she has been so sick and it doesn't appear to have been successful on the right lobe. The oncologist told her to try to enjoy the time she has left.
My mother asked him how this would all progress and he told her she would continue to feel more and more fatigued. She would like a more complete answer and I'm not sure who to ask. I am guessing that the reason she has not experienced more symptoms in the past is because the cancer is just starting to spread in the right lobe. Is this correct?
I am so confused and don't know what to tell her. Do you have any suggestions?
