    Bleeding

    Side Effects

    Doctor did colonopsky and said my mothers tumor had burst and formed a sack in a body cavity that sealed itself. They said it was colon cancer, did not recommend surgery, chemo, or radiation. Sent her hom and told her to come back when she felt she needed another blood transfusion.

    Doctor that did colonopsky recommened no treatmet.

    Decision Point

    I am very upset that they basically just told my mother to go home and do as usual unless she needed blood transfusion. No one explained what she should expect, what might happen, how long she might beable to live this way, what she could do to get help, etc.
