Bad news about my mum today. Urgent scan she had last week showed liver and peritoneal cavity mets and progression of lung primaries.
She stopped maintenance pemetrexed following four cycles of cisplatin and pemetrexed in November due to side effects and was due to have repeat scan end of feb to see about 2ndline therapy but was sent in for scan last week due to ongoing pain and nausea/vomiting and weight loss.
I wondered if anyone had had experience of similar progression and what - if any - treatment options may be.
Care so far has not felt joined up in any way and even trying to get changes to pain meds has been tough so keen to know what possibilities there are so I can ask for things if necessary (it feels like we’ve had to ask and push for absolutely everything so far).
In rural area sort of on boundary of CCGs/trust areas. Wondering if 2nd opinion / changing hospital from York to Leeds is worth considering although aware it will delay everything.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
