My mom was hospitalized 4 days ago due to following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, trembling, difficulty hearing and speaking, and she couldnt walk. She had breast cancer surgery on 2010. After surgery and chemo treaments, she was completely cured but she was diagnosed again on early 2012. It had been spread to some bone structures and mainly on river. She was going through chemo once again for 6months and all of sudden she collapsed with those symptoms a week ago. They took a mri of her brain and they said it may be leptomeningeal carcinomatosis. Shes too weak to get physical treatments right now and i know this disease will take her life away but i want to try best to save her. She lived poor and sad life thats why this situation hurts me so bad. If she somehow she get cured then she can go back to chemo for other cancer so problem right now is leptomeningeal carcinomatosis. Is there any treatments for leptomeningeal carcinomatosis besides chemo and radiation? Such ad pills or injection? I heard somthing about tarceva? Plz give me good answer please. She can not pass away right now. It will b unfair. Oh also doctor said his not 100% sure if its lc. It may be the infection that is showed on mri. Can jus a infection causes those symptoms?
