This past week has been crazy. We found out that mom has stage IV metastatic liver cancer that came from a neuroendocrine tumor that was removed in 2007. Here is my question..yesterday the oncologist said that the most effective treatment will be to use Sandostatin. Out of all of the reseach that I had done in prep for the appt, I read about chemo and tons of other treatments, but NEVER Sandostatin. In reseaching the meds it seems that they focus on the symptoms only. Are thye trying to say that shes at the end?
Whatever advice you have would be greatly appreciated!
