I am writing in relation to my 75 year old mother. She was diagnosed 22/3 with a 5 cm tumour on lung. Pet scan showed chest lymph nodes inflamed failed biopsy on the 24/3 and a month later we've just had the ebos scan for the lymph nodes came back inconclusive. Still no staging or type cancer defined.
After the long stressful wait we had the prognosis today and because my mum is a 20 year breast cancer survivor having had radiotherapy then they have suggested non curative radio as they think it will do her more harm that's good.......why can't they just remove it surgically if it hasn't spread!?
I think they think she's too old. Plus her esphysema. I have her on essiac capsules and true pine anti oxidants plus still alkalising and also awaiting vemma another high anti oxidants. I did ask about the targeted therapies and immunotherapy drugs but was told after a low dose age of 5 radiotherapy treatments that they would wait and see following outcome.
What can I or we do please advise and help direct us. Thanks in anticipation of your assistance? Praying for miracles
