Doctors think my mom's bile duct cancer has returned, not all tests are in yet, but they are pretty sure. I asked about chemo or radiation and the oncologist said no use giving chemo yet as she is not having any pain, is eating and doing some things. Said when she was in pain, he would do chemo. Is this the normal correct protocol?
