Mom's CT scans


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I haven't posted in a long time, I've been reading posts but my mom hasn't had any siginificant developments in the past 4 months until recently. She finished her 6 rounds of chemo and received her CT scan results today which showed the mets in the liver to be recurring and growing. She has been real tired (not from chemo), and has had pain in her sides and back and is always nauceous (sp?)

Anyway, that was disappointing of course. She had big tears. I guess I always knew that this news was lurking around the corner, I just hoped that it would be further into the future.

The onc is going to put her on Gleevec if her genes are compatible. Has anyone here taken that? If so were there any side effects and how did you fair?

Thanks for your responses.
