Mom diagnosed with Stage 3B: Not ready to give up
Hello, my mom has been diagnosed with Stage 3B pancreatic cancer. She had her gallbladder removed July 14th along with a bypass done from her small intestine to her stomach since it’s been months she can’t keep any food down. The tumor is located in the duodenum of the pancreas. She has been on TPN since July 8th. The doctors say she’s not strong enough for chemo & at this point has made it seem that it’s pointless and referring us to hospice. We are not ready to give up! My mom is a warrior and we’re ready to fight. I don’t know if we’re making the right decision. Should we get a new opinion? We also want to take her home but the hospital hasn’t been making it easy. Not sure how we can request home health care instead of having her in the hospital which she hates. Any advice or suggestions?
