Hello my mom has finished her treatment, intact somewhat, she spent the last 2 weeks of her treatment in the hospital, she is 68, PEG tube equipped and uses regularly. Last Rad was 3.12.12 and last Chemo was 2.22.12- today 5.27.12- she feels horrible, mucus party every day. No appetite, no desire for food at all. Her throat hurts all the time where the tumor was, in the back right of her throat. Was eating some peaches and fruit popsicles but, still no desire really... Will any of this get any better. She is so tired of feeling bad, wont get out of the house, wont get dressed. Has lost alot of her hair. I am sorry I am just complain, complain, complain..... It just seems this road is taking us nowhere good.
You know when they sit you down BEFORE treatment begins... they never tell you that you'll never be the same after treatment... they never say this treatment will just about kill you depending on your age...they never say that your mouth might not be useful later on... Sorry I just feel so bad for my mother, this treatment has really made her second guess ever taking it.
