Hi there, Grace community!
I'm writing because I'm a bit desperate! My mom has BC/mets in her lower lung, some bone, but overall good shape and stable. She's done two types of chemo, after Faslodex started failing, the 2nd line chemo is Taxol. But after 8 sessions of Taxol, doc says the illness is stable, so he wants her to take a break from everything for 3 months, to recover. Then he wants to do a PET scan, to see how things are and decide for new treatment. Is this normal?! Won't the illness progress and do irreversible damage? Have you ever heard of this treatment option of not doing ANYTHING for 3 months? Is the doc giving up on us? I AM SCARED! Please share your thoughts!
Many thanks to you!
