Choosing chemo or not at an advanced age: Thoughts?
My mother recently had a double mastectomy.
One breast was a triple negative.
Although the tests from the removal of the first lymphnodes came back clear, they tell us she has the option of having chemo in case it spread.
She is 89 years old. Although she acts 10 years younger than her age, I am afraid she won’t be able to handle the side affects.
We don’t know anyone to talk to about this, please, if you have experience, I would like very much to hear your thoughts.
