Linus Posted August 26, 2006 Share Posted August 26, 2006 I went to see my Mom today. She has been in a hospice facility since October of last year. She has been pretty out of it for a while now. Today when I went she was so swollen! Her head and neck were huge. I had to look around the room to make sure I was in the right room! She is believed to have brain mets again but we are not 100%. She has been on steroids for the last 2 years with no increase in the dosage. Does anyone have any idea about what could cause such swelling? I am not kidding when I say her head and neck look to be about 2-3 times what they were. Her voice was very deep and raspy today. She also has a cough now. None of this was the case last week. Any ideas will be appreciated. I hate not knowing and understanding what is going on. Hospice tells me it is all of the disease process. Well, duh! of course it is! Thanks for any help or ideas.
