Mom does not have to do chemo! She is going to take Femara.
When the oncologist told us, "Well, this is complicated," I laughed and said, Hey this is the lady who got lymphoma on the nose, she doesn't do anything just ordinary!
He talked with us about the benefits of Femara, but I had to ask why he wasn't suggesting chemo since the one lump is an aggressive cancer. He said, (and I quote), "It would kill her."
He firmly believes Femara will serve her well at keeping additional cancer at bay. It may not be a perfect solution, but mom did tell me afterwards she'd already decided she wasn't going to do the heavy-duty chemo route.
Talk about a burden lifted. Hugs to you all.
