Apologies for being repetitive on the forum but I am desperately trying to gather any helpful information before my parents meet with my mom's oncologist (next week). My mom's endometrial cancer appears to have spread to her appendix and possibly liver, despite completing chemo (carb/taxol) and 28 sessions of external radiation. I know that her prognosis is very poor but I'm really hoping that she can have some short reprieve from this, if at all possible. I imagine that they'll discuss different chemo and/or hormone options - is there anything else that we should ask about?
For any of you with late stage cancer, what has been most effective in slowing the disease progression?
Many thanks for any suggestions. (I am actually a biologist and am comfortable reading the research/current literature, but I am somewhat stunned by the little amount of research that I'm finding on late stage endometrial cancer. I think that those of you who are also going through this are much more helpful, so thank you for that!)
