5 days ago · Choosing chemo or not at an advanced age: Thoughts? in Breast Cancer

Thank you. I think we are leaning against any chemo. My mom is bone frail and does not weigh much- my biggest concern is that she isn't strong enough physically to fight off the rigors of chemo & side effects.
The more I read here, makes me believe that decision is probably for the best.
Should anything show up in the next scan, we will have to decide then what is for the best.
I'm, to say the least, scared. I'm not ready to lose my momma.

@dianamiracle. Thank you. Your response brought tears to my eyes. My mom had both breasts removed, so radiation was not necessary. We are leaning toward doing nothing. I pray it's the right decision.

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.
Thanks
