Too old for treatment.
Hi all, just a question. My wife’s mother has just been diagnosed with bowel cancer, she was told it has not spread but there is nothing they can do for her! She is 78 and is quite frail so I can understand not wanting to operate but to not even give her the option of chemo or radiation therapy just doesn’t seem right. Has anyone else had a similar situation? Would it be worth getting a second opinion or is there a standard policy of not helping anyone over 75?
Thanks in advance
