My wife has stage 4 cc. This past oct-nov, I don't remember, the dr. wanted to stop chemo. But my wife and I talked him into trying folfiri agsin, because she seemd to have the best results from it.
Well since late friday early saturday she seems to have taken a downword turn. She is unable to get out of bed on her own. She is having lower intestinal pain and pain in the left shoulder which she has never had. She is extremely weak. Hardly eats anything and sleeps most of the day. She has lost about ten pounds in the last three weeks. I am sure she has lost more since. She has also lost her voice. She can barely speak louder than a whisper. She has had three treatments of folfiri since starting it again.
I don't know what to do. I can't leave her home alone. Should I call her dr. or just take her to the ER? I know she doesn't want to go. But I am having a hard time taking care of her. I am also afraid they will tell us there is nothing more they can do for her. That would just kill me. Does anyone have any advice?
