I am in Italy visiting my mum, she is still in hospital after having 2 lots of fluid drained from her lung. She is feeling a lot better now after 1 week of rest. They will decide soon when to start her chemo regime (4 courses of taxol/ carboplatin)
My mum is 73 and in quite good health for age, she has the ascites and her OC is advanced to include lymph nodes in abdomen area. My concern is that they seem to be taking their time, firstly with the whole prognosis and various tests she had to do (4wks) and now the chemo delay,its another 2 wks on. The gyno said they could not operate now, but would do so after the chemo. I am worried that these delays will only make a bad situation even worse, i understand that she needs her strength for the chemo, but the fluid may return in the mean time and then we are back to square one. Feeling confused and frustrated, tomorrow will speak to Dr (no senior drs one around at w/e ) before flying home to London.
Many thanks to you all
