My sister in law was diagnosed with Glioblastome Multiforme IV in her temporal lobe 20 months ago. It is inoperable and not curable. How do we know when she has had her limit on chemo? She is in the hospital right now due to her platelets and white blood cell count being too low. The platelets were a 4 last week after they gave her platelets they are now a 30. We rushed her to the hospital because we found her on the floor of her bedroom yesterday. I do not understand why her oncologist did not admit her last week. We have just become her caretaker and we are playing catch up at this point. Any info would be greatly appreciated. It is like pulling teeth getting anything out of the oncologist. I am on the hipaa, her power of attorney and heatlh care adovcate. Just very frustrated at this point and I just want to do what is right for her.
