    Can anyone share chemo experiences of 80-yr-old lymphoma patients? Was it worth it if they were relatively healthy before cancer?

    My 80-yr-old grandma had successful surgery to remove small intestine cancer last fall. Six months later, she's had cancer removed from her nasal cavity and is diagnosed with a fast-growing stage III lymphoma in her nasal cavity. It has spread.

      This is a question of how well she can tolerate the chemo. Some people tolerate it really well and others do not. I know of people who choose to stop it because they do not feel that they want to live with what it does to them. It sounds like this is a question about her comfort. This question has been around for a while so I would guess you already have your answer. All the best Tracy
