Although I was expecting this result It is still a bitter pill to swallow. Now the medical team will discuss my options. I may get to know their opinions in 5 days day.
The thing is - what option would or should I choose if offered?
1) Gastrectomy if the surgeon is willing to take the risk at my age, being over 80, though I am generally still quite fit and active.
2) Chemotherapy. Its not a cure I have been told. It may prolong life, but by how much I have not been told and then there is the dreadful sickness to cope with.
3) Do nothing; just carry on as normal and hope I can survive another year? Two would be nice!
Its so hard to know what's for the best.
Has anyone else or their loved one had to make such a choice, and do you think it was the right choice?
I would dearly like to hear from anyone and everyone who has been in this dilemma.
