KanbeZ Posted August 30, 2022 Share Posted August 30, 2022 Hello everyone, A little background first, my mother is 49 and was diagnosed with NSCLC Stage IV back in March. By that time, cancer already spread to her brain, and the neurosurgeon did surgery to take the tumor out of her brain. She does not have any mutation for the targeted therapy. Now, She just finished her third set of Chemo (Keytradand+Carboplatin+Alimtathe) and the first section of her lung radiation. However, my mother claims she has shoulder pain, I take her to the ER. Now they found a new tumor on the left rib and sinusitis. The doctor in the hospital tell me to go with hospice because he believed there is no other medication she can take. Another thing is, that she has been doing blood transfusions because her platelets counts are low. I think this is also the reason why the doctor recommends a hopice? Does anyone here have had the same situation before? Did you go with the path of hospice or if you first tried to go to another hospital to see if there is any other option? Any recommendation would be appreciated! Thank you in advance! Update 10/9/2022 My mother passed away on 10/7, she was passed in the hospice house and seems passed very comfortable. I was making plans to take her to the clinic trial but she did not make it before she passed. Thank you everyone for support and reccomendation.
