Is metastatic ovarian cancer in an elderly person a concern?

My mother in law went lost over 50 lbs in 6 months. She is currently 92 lbs. She just had surgery and they found that her rectom was closed off and it was cancer. She received a colostomy bag. Now they are saying her cancer started off as ovarian cancer and then spread to her rectom. They want to start jer on chemo. What is the survival rate in something like this?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The metastatic ovarian cancer has pure prognosis and low rate of survival. In this case its favorable for the patient to undergo chemotherapy.
