They didn't give her a time limit, the oncologist she saw at the Mayo Clinic yesterday, Dr. Edith Perez, believes she can fight it.

You have to understand that "fighting it" does not mean curing it. Once it's spread it's a matter of time. Treatments can extend that time, but often the treatments make the extra time miserable.

Do you mind telling me more? My mom was resistant to the chemo treatment idea, but the oncologist assured her that it was the right step.

I would urge her to ask more questions. Ask directly about side effects. Moving back to a place she loves and being happy sounds beautiful compared to mouth sores, brain swelling, puking, weakness -- my uncle even had persistent hiccups 24/7 for a week after every chemo, which sounds funny but was MISERABLE. Doctors are human and in our experience most oncologists think patients want to hear they have a chance. That's an easier conversation than "sorry." And, my cynical side says it's not good business for the oncologist. [ Reply | More ]
