First grandma had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer 2006, passed away from it 2010 (I think it spread to intestine, no where else). Then my mom got it, but a different cell type-nonsmall cell neuroendocrine ovarian cancer, Jan.2013, had hysterectomy, finished Etoposide and IP Cisplatin July 2013. Everything "fine" for 2 checkups, then headaches for 2-3 days over New Year's weekend, then they went away. Headaches came back Jan.11, 2014, this time with nausea, vomiting, head spinning, etc. and was found to have 5 tumors on the brain, from mets, as per MRI. Now she is recovering at Genesis rehab in Elkton, MD, and Decadron has been a big help. They are weaning her off this and will off this around 2/25/14. Finishing her final WBR 1/29/14. Gamma or cyber knife was part of the plan a couple weeks from now, that is now not part of the plan. She followsup with gyn/onc 2/10/14. So what now? Is this it? Should we seriously start considering there are absolutely no other options? She has plans and goals, wants to go back to her apartment, take care of her cat, go Aruba with my son and I, just go on and live LIFE. Is this possible? This is a very weird position for her and family to be in.
