bugno92 Posted September 11, 2008 Share Posted September 11, 2008 My mom was diagonosed sept 07 with NSCLC with mets to brain and adrenals. She is sleeping much of the time, but still caring for herself. She has to hang onto walls when she walks because of nerooptathy(her walking is getting worse). Yesterday she went to doctors with servere pain in rib area, it was xrayed but no fracture. The doctor put her on 100mg fetanyl patch and higher does of percocets, i think 70 mg. I have not called hospice yet but doctor has encouraged me to. A couple questions, what do you think the rib pain is? My mom has nausea, is this normal for lung cancer? I am caring for my mom by myself, no family in the area. I just dont know what to do. She has also become incontinent at times. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
