There are SO many factors to consider when struggling through this journey of cancer. Your mother's age and overall health condition and strength are factors to consider. Chemo is not easy and the side-effects for some are worse than the actual cancer symptoms. I can only speak on my own personal experience. The oncologist suggested no further treatments for my dearest mom due to other health concerns. Yes, we were devastated initially with the feeling of hopelessness. However, in our case it was the 'best' decision. No more doctor's appointments. No side-effects. My mom continued with her normal routine of life in her own home and with family. At times, it was so 'normal' that we thought the doctors had made an incorrect diagnosis. Sadly, my best friend and mom has passed away. It was so fast and it was in her home which she dearly loved. Although I miss her every day, I do look back on those days and I am grateful for the good quality and loving times we spent together. Peace to you and your mom during this very difficult time.
