Tom I Posted December 16, 2003 Share Posted December 16, 2003 Mom was admitted to the hospital on 12/5 for 5 days of chemo with Topotecan for reoccurrence of SCLC. She was mentally and physically in good shape before going in. She made it through chemo in good shape without any significant side effects. She was weak after the chemo, but physical therapy was started to get her strength back. Things were looking like she would be home this week. Over the weekend she started to deteriorate mentally. Now she cannot even operate the phone or TV. Here breathing has improved significantly but everything has deteriorated. She can’t feed herself. The doctors are checking for infection. I have a bad feeling that the brain tumors have started growing again. I’m going to push the doctor to do another scan. The difficult part is that this has all happened so quickly. Has anyone been through anything similar? Hearing from others that have been through this would be a great help to me so that I can understand what is happening.
