My mother was told last week that since she had not put up any weight she couldn't get more chemo. She had to take a break from the chemo she was on about 6-8 weeks ago as it was too much for her and she had lost a lot of weight. She has been dealing with this for about 2.5 years - this was her 3rd round of chemo. Up to this there was always another option to try but there doesn't seem to be one anymore. She is a good age, 79 in Sept. however, she had hoped to at least make it to 80. If anyone knows what other options are out there let us know (i.e. any ways to put up weight for instance)
