My mom was dx at ER w/ advanced OC last week. She is home now, waiting for final biopsy results to begin tx. She has 20 cm tumor and ascites, and is so uncomfortable. She can't eat much, and it is hard for her to be comfortable. Is this normal for her to have to wait so long to begin tx? Should I be pushing to get in her sooner? Should she be in the hospital? Is there any hope? Her onco keeps saying once she starts tx, things should shrink and she will become more comfortable. Please, any encouraging words would be helpful. I feel as if I am in hell right now.
