Pacreatic/Liver... end stages
My dad was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in July 2011. He went through chemo from 08/01/2011 thru 08/22/2012, then it was discontinued because it was no longer helping. It's been a month now that hospice has been monitoring his condition. He is continually weaker. The jaundice has been steadily increasing. His pain medication has been increased continually. There is swelling in the abodomen but the abdomen is staying soft, not hard like a drum, but pedisone is being administered. This man is/was 6'2 and weighed 230 pounds, he's now down to 170 pounds, maybe. I was rubbing his back yesterday and his ribs and shoulder bones were all I felt, nothing there. I don't know how long we have left. Could anyone help me with some advice.
I'm scared. I don't know what to think or feel, I can't do anything to make it better. He's ALWAYS helped me and now I can't do anything to make this better for him.
