    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Mom has been doing really well on chemo. She went from chemo every 2 weeks and now every 3 weeks. She has only been sick once and that was last week. She is handling everything well and the side effects are minimal

    PT Scans

    Celebration

    The PT scans show no signs of cancer, which means it has shrunk, but she is still talking chemo every 3 weeks. Side effects: thrush in her mouth, hair loss has stopped (she still has hair, its just thin, no weight loss)

    My mom has done almost 2 years of chemo for her pancreatic cancer. She has been put in hospital for dehydration after the last two chemo's. They have a plan to avoid this next time, hopefully it works
