Topic: I don't get it
I don't undestand why my mom is not responding to treatment. It's great to read about the positive stories on here but it's not the case with my mom. She's only been on gemzar and then xeloda which we are told are the two strongest chemos to treat this cancer. Neither one worked. It seem like doctors are giving up on her and it's frustrating. They don't recommend her trying clinical trials because it could do more harm, they don't suggest radiation either because they feel it could do more harm. They sound more positive about her doing nothing and this was both at Mayo and her chicago based oncoligist.
I am working while taking care of my mom at home but I spend the day trying to think of where to take her next and who can help her (when I should be working of course). I don't know what to do next. I'm sure many of you feel this way and I just had to vent.
Her CC has matastisized so is there any hope? Thanks for listening ;-)
