Re: pancreatic cancer end stage what to expect

I don't know if it is too late to answer your question or not. I hate to say that everyone's end stage is different but it is. It can also depend on where the cancer has spread to as to how the person will face the end, is there more cancer in the liver or the lungs, or the stomach..... that might affect the final symptoms. Also, you should know that hospices are very very good at pain management and helping people through end stage and minimizing discomfort. There is a book written by a hospice nurse that I highly recommend called Final Gifts. It is a must read for anyone facing the end stages. I hope that this helps in some way.
