abul0826, I am so very sorry to hear about your Mom. Was she fragile prior to her fracture? Is your Mom alert and able to understand her diagnosis? I think my question would be if I were your Mom: Do you feel I would be able to tolerate a cancer treatment in my deconditioned state? Her oncologist should have a treatment plan he/she should discuss with you and your Mom including side effects. When would this treatment plan start? What do you feel might be my prognosis? I feel that would give you the necessary information on how to approach her treatment. Best wishes.....
