    Hi,

    My mum was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year and had surgery. It’s now spread to he liver and palliative chemo has been suggested. She had a rubbish time with chemo last year and can’t work out whether to accept less time and no chemo or more time and risk the chemo side effects. Does anyone have advice on how to work out whether time or quality of life are more important? We don’t know where to start really. 

    Thanks
