i know what you're talking about inoperable, my mom died last year, from non hodgkins lymphoma, she had all the same conditions as you spoke of no tea was offered her. we were told she had liver tumors and only had 2weeks to live, it took more then 2weeks before chemo began ,after ward my moms heart was affected her kidneys she suffered for 8months before she pasted on. ibelieve we should get second ,third fourth opinions if possible, we stuck with one doctor who told us half trues never told us there was no cure, he only said he could cure her the cancer was in remission up until she died 3day"s after her last visit.keep searching get into trial studys, i feel awful everyday thinking i could have helped my mom more, and not have let the doctors put her in a nurseing home never knowing she wouldnt survive this. they told us she couldnt have surgery either only chemo it didnt help. please never give up.
