| | Question about Decadron
My mom was diagnosed on 9/5/03 with SCLC and told that she has 12-18 months to live. The cancer had spread to her brain and she was put on Decadron. She has been weaned off of Decadron for about a week. Her legs have become very weak, she has actually fallen a couple of times trying to stand from a sitting position. Her oncologist told her that the weakness is probably from the Decadron and that it should get better now that she is off of it. Is this true? Has anyone here had experience with Decadron? Will the side effects go away, stay the same, or get worse?
I appreciate any infomation.
