I took a chemo that had to be taken twice then it started going down, tumors. Two different ones did this to me. I have ovarian and off and on chemo for 7 years. There is something out there for her. Maybe find a cancer center or another oncologist if this one is not helping her enough. I dont know the full situation. But do you have anyone who could help you with your parents? The American Cancer Society maybe able to help or right here on the network they have info that may help you. Some Drs are fantastic some not so good. Maybe she has a good one but need to ask questions. If they dont tell you what you want to hear change oncologist and get the list from the Cancer Soiety and even maybe some help taking care of parents. Cancer Society may help on getting you direction. I pray for you families best.
Prayers and Hugs
