Mom had chemo on friday. Just the taxol. they decided she was not fit to do every week. She had her neulasta shot on saturday so she is having a harder time recovering this time. i am worried. She looks terrible. So small and just like a shell of her former self. She was having pain has that on the left side of her head closer to front. Not like a migraine but like it hurt. Just could not get it to go away. Tried her vicodin. Tried to give her some claritin hoping it was inflammation. So the doc said to go in for a checkup. They ended up doin a catscan and it didn't show anything but he said if it doesn't go away he wants to do an MRI? I am not trying to jump the gun, or be negative. I just wanna know if this cancer has a habit of spreading to the brain? I mean no one here seems to have that problem. Is it possible for this pain to be a tumor if the catscan didn't show one? I am worried. Any honest answers are appreciated. Mom is ready to give up again. I told her she has been through so much and she's nearing the end for atleast awhile.I can't help her through this if she sits around rubbing her head all day trying to find ways to relieve the pain. He perscribed percocet but even that is still just dulling it a little. HELP!!!!!!
