| | Re: Tumor and fluid pressing on lungs -
I'm sorry to jump this to the top, but things keep going downhill - the docs say there is nothing more they will do - basically, they are letting my mother suffocate to death. They are giving her a few days to live....I'm sorry to put it so bluntly, but I feel so helpless right now...my Mom is my best friend and Mother... I call her everyday just to ask how her day has been, and I can't imagine not being able to do that anymore. I'm only 28 years old, I still need a Mom. I'm engaged to be married, and I can't envision walking down the aisle without her to give me away... And I can't believe that there isn't someone out there who hasn't had this happen from their personal experience with lung cancer, and I will not allow them to just give up. There has to be something else we can suggest...Please, has anyone had this symptom? Are there any other treatments besides a chest tube??
Again, I know all posts are important, but time is running out on my Mother - it could be days at the most....
