Today Mom went in to have her sixth and final chemo treatment, but when we told her dr about how she almost passed out last night after taking a bath. I don't know whether she got overheated, low hemoglobin or what, but her dr said we should just stop at 5. My Mom does have multiple health problems such as chronic kidney failure, she acquired a pulmonary embolism after her 3rd chemo and she has arthirits/gout and hypertention. So her dr said "we'll leave well enough alone." Has anyone else just had 5 treatments? She scheduled to speak with a radiation oncologist next Tuesday. I'm afraid that if the chemo was doing all of this to her body...what's the brachythery going to do? She's also had radiation on her back years ago, I don't know if that will have anything to do with this radiation. I must say we are BOTH glad the chemo is over! Yay! We're taking this day by day!
