I AM FACING THE PROSPECT OF HELPING MY 82 YR OLD MOM DECIDE IF SHE SHOULD MOVE FORWARD WITH CHEMOTHERAPY WITH THE DRUGS 5FU & LEUCOVORIN. SHE RECENTLY HAD A MALIGNANT TUMOR REMOVED FROM HER COLON ALONG WITH HER SPLEEN, PART OF HER PANCREAS & SOME LYMPHS NODES. NOTHING AS YET ON HER LIVER & SHE HAD A NORMAL READING FROM A PRE-OPERATIVE LIVER FUNCTION TEST. TREATMENTS ARE SCHEDULED TO START NEAR THE END OF JUNE OR EARLY JULY. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF ANYONE OUT THERE HAS BEEN IN A SIMILAR SITUATION & WHAT WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE FOR YOUR PARENT/LOVED ONE AT A SIMILAR AGE. THANK YOU
