They did radiation on the intestines this time, with chemotherapy.. she was only able to take one bout of chemo, and stopped radiation after 5 days. They have pretty much sent her home to die. My mom is 54 now and they are talking about getting palliative care people to come to the home. She can't walk hardly due to the edema in her legs and she has inflamed liver and acities in her abdomen, fluid around her lungs. The fluid is not enough to remove but her breathing is impeded. My main concern right now is the liver.. she is getting jaundice now and i need anyones advice on how to decrease liver inflammation because I do not want her to have liver failure. We are trying her on our own alternative therapy for treating the cancer..but we need to get the liver down.. Someone please send me advice.. doctors say theres nothing they can do and I'm not taking that as an answer.
