My mother has recently been diagnosed with bowel cancer and has just had her second round of chemo in tablet form. I have been caring for her and I am finding it impossible to get her to eat anything at all. She just curls up in a ball and says she can't. My sister and I have tried cajoling, bullying and pleading but nothing seems to work. I even had to call the paramedics to get her to drink fluids. I am really feeling that it's all spinning out of control. Does anyone have any ideas? thanks xx
