Stage IV Bladder Cancer
My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 bladder cancer 11 months ago. He went through 6 months of aggressive chemotherapy and was cancer free for 3 months. It has now spread to lymph nodes in the abdominal area, pelvic area, and the lower aorta area. He has decided to forgo any further treatment and as hard as it is, I have to respect his decision. My question is "What happens next?" He is experiencing a lot of pain, nausea and weight loss. He is taking oxycotin for pain and zophrin and phen gel for nausea. His oncologist told us that my husband could possibly survive for maybe 6 months. He seems to be going downhill fast. What can I expect for the remaining time he has?
