Hi I am writing on behalf of my mother- she is 80 and a fighter - she was diagnosed with ppc in November - she has had 3 sessions of chemo - which in itself has been difficult - she couldn't stand the taxel - anyway yesterday the Macmillan nurse rang to say that they would not do the debulking surgery - there had been some response to the Chemo but the distribution of the tumors meant surgery was difficult. Devastated and frightened are 2 words that spring to mind. She is to go on with some more chemo - I have no understanding at all of what is going on or what I can do to help her - is this it? 3 more sessions and then goodbye - the hospital said she will see her consultant on Monday ..... That's nearly a week of agony and anxiety - do I seek a second opinion ? Do we do more chemo to see if she can be operated on I don't know - my mother is low - can anyone give me advise please?
