We did not discuss further options of treatment if the tumors returned. I guess partially because it would depend upon where the tumor was located. I, too, was told that if the tumors returned they would be more aggressive. That is what makes this cancer so hard to combat! My goal in getting the scans so often was so that we could catch the tumor early if the cancer returned.
I know this is a hard time! It is also hard to care for a parent – knowing what is best for them. I took care of my parents for 10 years. It is hard to make those judgments for someone else wanting to do what is best for them. I was constantly second-guessing myself. I finally realized all I could do was the best I could do. I might have made mistakes, but second-guessing myself was of no value – you can’t change a decision once it is made. You just have to move forward knowing you did the best you could!
