I am new to this site, and really wish I didnt have to be here ;-( I've been reading the posts on this site and find them to be much more hepful and insightful than the advice of mom's oncologist. thanks for that.
My world has come crushing down and I am desperate for hope.... My mom was diagnosed in Sept 2012 with advanced colorectal cancer, with mets to both lungs. She started chemo in October 2012 and is still doing that. Scans will be done shortly to determine how it is going. I get why chemo is necessary, however it seems to me that surgery would help. I've heard of cyberknife and temotherapy, a treatment that is not widely offered.
Does anyone have any (hopefully positive) feedback on this therapy? And the cost?
Can anyone give me some advice on how to help my mom with perhaps other treatments. Im desperate and want to do whatever I can to maximise her prospects.
