No: Sounds like your grandma is in a fairly advanced stage so she must have ALS for a while quite enough time to discuss her decease with her doctors.I find it a stretch to believe that you haven't been told not once but repeatedly that this decease has no cure and that the only approved drug riluzole only slows it a little. for more information about this decease check out http://www.alsa.org.
