Yes, I Will.Mum's depression must have been a sign, pretty sure!! But the situation was bad and anyone would have suffered of it, so noone paid attention to it. She also had gastritis with emorragic wounds and the doctor said she was the only one who could Know the origin of her problema....and indeed she had an answer..( now I Know she had two...) Anyway I ve met Mom oncologist today: she weekly suggested a chemo: Oxaliplatin&Fluorouracile but also said this might just render her weaker t'han she is now, not to mention the side effects..and to think well before deciding to do it since that could just stop the cancer where it is now but not improve things. I honestly told Mom who said she is happy to try, also for me, who honestly prefer her alive for as long as possible ...but i did not push her in her decision. Oncologist wants to see her this afternoon to check her overall condition and see How risky the chemo Will be and if she can safely do it. I do not Know what to say...oncologist said there's no way back...scared that this Will push her 'one more step down' as happened with RT...but what other chances do we have? Alternative scenario is not good either..
