Should Mom get chemo?

My sweet mom and best friend was recently diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. they operated to bypass the tumor and allow her to eat. she is doing well 4 weeks after surgery. they recommend chemo but she is 82 and I am very concerned about quality of life. Any recommendations? Right now she has no pain. I love her so much and want to do what's best for her.. help please...
