Jaqueline22 Posted September 5, 2008 Share Posted September 5, 2008 My mom is a non-smoking 55 year old female. She is the most important person in my life! She was diagnosed, June 2008, and just went through her last chemo treatment yesterday. The oncologist informed us that the tumors are still there, even though they have shrunk, but will never go away. She will continue to have Avastin every 3 weeks, and cat scans every 6 weeks. He informed us that the cancer WILL come back, he just doesn't know when. Somewhere between 6 months to 2 years. This has been such a shock, because from the beginning he gave us every reason to think she was going to be fine. He said this wasn't terminal???? But now he says the cancer will never go away, they can only shrink it, and wait until it starts growing. Then put her through chemo all over again. I've watched her go from being so energetic, to sleeping until 12pm and napping all day, just to go back to bed at 9pm. I HATE CANCER, and IT IS NOT FAIR Hurt and Confused Jackie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
