My mom was diagnoised on Dec 14th with Cancer of the Pancreas, which has spread to the nodules on the bowel. She did her 1st Gemzar treatment on Monday the 28th. She did not do very well with the Chemo. She got really sick. Can anyone help me with anything to help my mom with this. The doctors have given her pills to take for the Nausea but they don't seem to be working. She is talking about not continuing with Chemo. I'm so afraid of losing her, she is only 59. She is going to ask the doctor on Monday how long she has to live if she doesn't continue with the Chemo. I tell her that she has to make it her decision to continue or not, even though I want her too. We live in Michigan where Dr Jack Kervorian is and my mom asked us the other day if we'd contact him. (which we did not) I feel in my heart that she maybe giving up to fast, my best friends mom died a year ago September of the same thing. My mom feels because the doctor told her that he could not cure her he'd could only prolong her life she feels that the end results are the same. what words of incouragement can I give her. Please let me know. Thank you in advance.
