My Mom was diagnosed with lung cancer in Sept. It had spread to her bones and brain. She completed her radiation last October and completed her chemo the middle of February. Can someone give me their experience on the recovery after their chemo? She is REALLY weak, mainly because she lived with a dehabilitating cough for 10 months before they diagnosed her. I don't want to push her too hard but then again I want to push her hard enough to get her strength back. At times she really gets down because she is so weak and it seems like she will have 3 or 4 good days and then 3 or 4 bad days. I think I'm going to look for a physical therapist that has experience with chemo and cancer recovery. Any input is greatly appreciated. And I want to add to all that have cancer to stay strong, stay positive and keep believing that the impossible CAN happen. My Mom is living proof. Keep the faith. God bless.
