Mom went for her third Chemo today. They decided not to do it because she has a problem with her liver. She needs a Percutaneous Billiary Stent/Drain. There is a collection of fluid in the left lobe of the liver. They think that this represents bile lakes or bilomas. Her CT still shows no cancer in the liver. She has been very nauseas for 5 days and has not eaten or drank for 4 days. She tried Reglan, Zofran, Campazine and one other but they did not work. She is going to MSK ER in NYC in the morning. They will evaluate her then hopefully admit her so she can have the procedure on Monday. Hopefully this will do the trick for her nausea. Does anyone have any experience with these problems. The Onc said she could have gotted her third chemo today but she hasn't eaten. They were also afraid her liver might get infected. Thank you.
