My mom has stage 4 GBM. Surgery was in november of 2016. 100% tumor removed. She went through round of radiation followed by chemo pills. Now the tumor has grown back after 7 months. Shes in bed all day long. She now has a hospital bed. Not able to take chemo because she is just too weak. She cant get up. She has a catheter. She doesnt talk much at all anymore. She just stares. She eats a little bit and drinks. Doesnt seem to be in any pain. Doctors are suggesting hospice. What are my options at this point? Is there any point of hoping that she can regain strength to do the avastin chemo? I really need clarity. Is it the end?
