Robbi Posted March 10, 2008 Share Posted March 10, 2008 My mom had chemo (taxol/carbo) almost three weeks ago. She is not bouncing back like I thought she might. She's not eating at all. I take her food and she'll eat one bite and put it down. I keep telling her she has to eat or she's going to end up in the hospital. She literally sleeps most of the day--today she never got out of bed, which is a first. She usually gets to the couch in the family room for the day and sleeps there. Her oncologist did order a MRI of her brain last Friday. That came back 'stable'. I would assume that means no new mets--and the tumor hasn't shrunk but is stable. I'm only guessing--I'll find out more at her doctor appointment next Monday. I know my mom is elderly (84) but I'm wondering if ANYONE had this experience after chemo. I also think her radiation might have contributed to this as well. She had 15 radiation treatments and radio surgery right before chemo. Thanks for any advice you might give me.
