liver cancer

my husband passed away 10 days ago.John already had liver cancer.
He had developed a bakers cyst.(week 1)He was on Oxycodone.And a Steroid pack. He worsened(week2).Given more Oxycodone from his cancer doctor.2 days passed and i noticed he was yellow and weak.Took John back to E.R..He was admitted.The bakers cyst ruptured and was abcessed.He was on I.V ,antibiotics,morphine etc..He also recieved 3 units of blood..
The abcess was opened and cleaned.But his liver was swelling and they wouldnt tap him..??2 days passed they did a tap w/drain.1 day after , he started bleeding again through the nose.The doctor said he was losing the fight.The liver was shutting down..(week3) John was gone..What happened?Was it the poison?The meds?Stress-all the above..Im soo confused a knee injury could take him like that..What went wrong?? Thank you..
