good morning. Your mom is suffering from cervical cancer which has spread to many other areas of the body. Moreover she has a poor performance status because of cancer associated pain and weakness and thats why she is sleeping and tired and most of the times she is in bed. At such a stage of illness we dont give any chemotherapy to patient as patient will not tolerate the chemo. Chemo is given only to a fully mobile patient. The only treatment left is to give her symptomatic treatment for pain, sleep, fluids anti vomiting drugs, oxygen etc.
