I don't know if it's the medication or if it's just her in general ( which she has never been like this before) but she has become very needy and mean. My mom has always been very independent and trust me when I say we don't mind doing things for her! It's about time we did!!!! But, when we do, all we do is get yelled at or down talked to. Then she is always repeating herself about things in the past and gets worked up which she cannot afford to do! I try to calm her but she has to continue. I try to tell my siblings and her husband it's the meds that are doing this to her. No one wants to believe that and I feel like I am the only one that tries to understand. Yes, she gets snippy with me and at times repeats herself over and over but I just sit there and listen to her and I don't take things to heart. Does anyone have any information or experiences that could be shared with me and my family.

Did you or your loved one seek a second opinion before starting cancer treatment?
No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
