My mom (71) was diagnosed with stage 4B uterine on 8/8; laporscopic hysterectomy on 8/15 and we plan to meet with oncologist to review chemo protocol on 8/28. The cancer is very advanced. She recovered well from surgery but a week out started with significant vomiting and lethargy, is this the disease? depression? fear? Just keeping her hydrated is an issue. Will they do chemo if she is this sick? Can someone tell me about how the disease progresses (not the stages or symptoms) but what to expect as we transition through this. I have dealt with nasal, lung and breast cancer but this seems different.
