I am the caregiver for my mom in law. She was diagnosed Aug. 2010 Stage 3 mets. A month ago she was given final diagnosis Stage IV mets to the omentum. She was given life expectancy of 1-3 months. I dont believe inthe whole time thing. Here is what I do want to know. Excessive phlegm? Body aches? Hiccups? The only thing she is taking id Phenargan for nausea, Dilaudid for pain and Fentanyl patch. Treatments received were Avastin, Xeloda, 5fu and several feet of colon removed but no colostemy bag. After reading numerous posts I am a bit curious about her treatments or lack thereof. Any advice or opinions would be great. I have many more questions. Prayers and blessings to all.
