The Squamous cell carcinoma is located on my 93 year old husband's rectum. The radiation oncologist, Dr Amin, felt a larger than normal lymph node on his right side and suspects that the cancer has traveled. All of our doctors do not recommend chemo. At age 93 my husband is getting weaker by the week. Dr Amin thinks that a short treatment would help him. He also stated that the rectum area would be very tender for at least two week after the treatments. After reading the side effects of diarrhea, bleeding, fatigue, etc. I really am not sure. Several doctors have mention Hospice. I do know if I elect to do this procedure Hospice will not be available to us, while he is in treatment. Any advise is welcomed.
