Re: Stage 4 End of Life Issues

My husband had stage 4 Esophageal Cancer, stage 4.
He had a prior stroke, so his case was different.
EVERYONE'S case is different. Age, physical health, all seem to play in treating this horrible disease.

My husband had chemo and radiation for customary time and things looked great.

He did however, find the CANCER came back to this lungs and took him in 6 weeks...

Ina nswer to your questions, it could be up to 5 years, IMO.
Hospice care can come to your home, if you so desire, if no treatment is started.
Again, every one's Cancer is different, so I would say it is hard telling how long Hospice would could come your home.
You could go the nursing route.

I pray your mom is still fighting
