My Mother who is 92 just found out she has cancer of the liver...the tumor is 12cm. She also has a heart problem, 3 of her arteries are almost blocked. What is the realistic treatment for this? She also has a slight yellow hew to her skin.
That is a large tumor - - How does your mother feel about enduring the uncomfortable treatments and side effects from treating the cancer in order to extend her life? I don't want to sound callous but at her advanced age she might prefer not to spend the time left to her in and out of the hospital. I say this because this is what my 89 year old mother told me when doctors wanted her to go post surgical chemo and/or radiation after she recently dealt with another type of cancer. I don't ever want her to leave me but I have to respect and honor her wishes because I do love her.
