Hi I am new here to the site.. My mother was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer that had to many metastasis to the liver.. She has a large tumor in her cecum, it is a very aggessive cancer, on October 15, 2012. I moved my parents out here in Oregon so they would get the best care , with me watching over they arrived 1 month later, with mom needing to start chemo asap. She was doing really good on the folfox with avastin, her CEA went from 2969 down to 69 with the 8 treatments , but the 8th one landed her in the hospital for a week and they had her take a break for the last 6 weeks..... since then she has falling more and more.... she does not move more then when she has to ... Is that normal in the advance stages of colon cancer? I tell her she needs to get out more, but I am not sure if I am pushing her to hard.. It seems the harder I push the more she fails or lands in the hsopital..
I guess I turned here , because my family has no idea what my dad and I go through to keep her here with us , every day is a battle for her and us...I am hoping to find some answers in , if pushing her is the thing to do....any suggestions??? Just trying to keep her fighting the fight. Thanks for listen, prayers and hopes to you all fighting this fight , all of you are my heros...
