Bad news: Her cancer is advanced and she likely has a clot in her right leg. Best to comment on her prognosis will be her treating oncologist. While hoping for the best, prepare for the worst. In case she is no longer a candidate for cancer directed therapy, make sure she gets palliative care or hospice for better symptom control.
