    Radiation was the toughest of treatments for my wife and she at the time of treatment was 52 years old! Radiation kills the tumor at the site where cancer was discovered, it is sort of insurance that it will destroy whatever cells would be left at the site!Chemotherapy destroys the cells that might have escaped to other parts of the body, surgery removes the tumor itself and radiation is applied to the site to destroy remaining cells! Treatment is usually over a specific amount of time that is on a daily basis, and it was very painful for us! Not everyone responds to radiation the same way! I have heard from others that it was a walk in the park! For us it was hell! It could be physically too much for her, the only person to know for sure is her radiation oncologist and regular doctor! A friend of mine had breast cancer at 65 years old and did not have it again for ten years! At 75 years old she decided to not have treatment because she did not want to suffer through it all again!Each person needs to evaluate if the costs are worth the price of the goods received! I know what radiation did to my wife but she is considerably younger than your grandma! The treatment for her could be the straw that breaks her back! The doctors need to give an evaluation to decide if it is something she can handle!
