To Treat Mesothelioma or Not?
My grandmother was diagnosed 2 weeks ago with mesothelioma, she's had liquid drained from her lung, and they had to unclog an artery. The doctor ruled out the surgery and chemotherapy because he says it will only make it worse, so she is on depression medication and painkillers. Should we just follow his advice and let her live on with this without chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery?
