Hello all, I am looking for some guidance from people who have been here. My mother has lung cancer (Stage 3 diagnosed in Nov 2018). They gave her 3 months when she was first diagnosed. We did chemo and radiation and she did well. She started immunotherapy and after a few months she was very weak and we found metastasis to the brain, which we found in Nov 2019. Since then, she did Gamma Knife and nothing else. She is in hospice at home since February 2020 but still speaks, eats well, and is mostly alert. She does have moments of bad memory and confusion and cannot really walk anymore without assistance, and with assistance it is difficult.
Has anyone else had a loved one in this situation? I would like to know what to expect going forward. Her doctors have not been able to give me a time frame. It could be weeks or months, they say, which is not helpful. When she was first diagnosed, they told us 3 months. A year and a half later, here we are. A couple of months ago they told us weeks. And here we are. They really have no idea. They just keep telling me to take it one day at a time. I'm just looking for someone who has gone through it and is further along than us, and tell me what I could expect? Thank you.
