Oncologist, Surgical 's  Response
I am sorry to say so, but the only treatment for stage 4 rectal cancer is chemotherapy with or without surgery. If she has been unable to tolerate the chemotherapy, then you can change the drugs in consultation with your oncologist as there are a number of regimes. There is no treatment for any cancer in Ayurveda or other alternate therapies. So please dont waste your time and money on them.
