My sister was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in July 2013 which had her ovaries swollen. Hence, she had 6 cycles of chemo (taxol) and then Hysterectomy in Feb 2014 which had a part of her colon removed and hence had to wear a colostopy bag for a month or little more and had her operation to remove colostopy bag by April 2014.
She got traumatized with chemos and surgeries that she decided to go with alternative treatments such as Homeopathy and Ayurveda. But now in March 2015, we discovered that cancer has relapsed on her urinary bladder with a large mass measuring 15 cm and deposits on her liver too. She has finally relented to go back to hospital, but the oncologists here now are suggesting that they cannot do anything more for her.
They said since her cancer cells are calcifying , she doesn't need chemo or radiation. Could anyone from here help clarify this please? I am not sure if they would do a surgery to remove her mass too. She has now developed problems with her kidneys too as this mass is obstructing urethra.
Really need your support and advise ....please anyone, did you face this situation? I am devastated to know that we cannot do anything to help her come out of this .....
