Hi welcome to HCMForum. Your mother is already old enough.
The capacity to bear the chemo therapy will be less. there
may be secondary infection of klebsiella. Dont worry as she is
inpatient doctors will take care of her. Besides i advise some
diet restrictions for her as to take more of curd and bland
foods. avoid taking spices chillies oily foods junk foods and
sour fruits. i hope my reply satirfied you.
