Over the last two weeks my mom has lost 6 lbs. She has now gone from 135 lbs to 88 lbs. The doctors say don't get caught up in the numbers such as CA 125 levels (Mom's lowest is 3,300) but it is so hard not too.
The doctors changed her meds two weeks ago and other then the acid reflux medication i don't feel like they are making her any better possibly worse.
I keep telling mom she has to fuel the machine by eating even when she doesn't want to but she isn't and i feel myself getting annoyed. I want to ask her if she wants to die then just keep doing what you are doing but i know that won't help the situation.
The doctor has said on mom's last two visits that her stomach is smaller and softer. I am assuming this is a good thing. Lately, I just keep hearing the doctor say she only has a year to eighteen months which is what we were told September 4th. Wow, six months of that time has gone already......
Thankfully Mom has had zero pain of discomfort. I hope the clinical trial is making a difference but I guess we won't know for sure until her March 8th CT scan.
Thanks for listening.
