126 cher, my mom currently is living extremely well. No major pain, her tumor was in the tail and the radiation reduced the size of it. The one downfall is her posture is bad thus she is in a wheel chair majority of the time. Make sure to keep his primary physician informed.

cocopuff, once a patient enters hospice, PT and OT usually end. Only comfort care is given. Strength and stamina will not return. Time is short. God keep you calm for the journey.

My father is 70 and just agreed to hospice last week. He has stage IV pancreatic cancer. He was just transferred to a skilled nursing facility, after being hospitalized for sepsis, for PT/OT to hopefully gain some strength and stamina in order to come to my home.
