jen4mom Posted March 13, 2009 Share Posted March 13, 2009 My mom was hospitalized in November for extreme fatigue, low hemoglobin, low electrolytes. She has been a heavy smoker for 60 years.The md suspected lung cancer and after she demanded to be released, she finally had a PET scan middle of January. She finally just had the biposy done this week when they placed a pleurax catheter in her lung. She was also hospitalized again in February. It is clear that she has lung cancer that has spread to her chest wall, lymph nodes, diaphragm and liver. So, since the doctoor just got the biopsy, we still haven't been told how much time she has. We know that it is extensive or stage 4, depending on which type it is. How will we know she is in her last days?? What do we look for????
