What can a family member/caretaker expect in caring for an end stage lung/adrenal cancer patient?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Amir Faridi
Specializes in Hematology and Oncology
Symptoms: Patient can experience pain, shortness of breath, volume depletion, nutritionally deficient and week.
Dr. David Wensel
Palliative Care 18 years experience
Prognosis: The best predictor of how a patient will do is how they are doing physically. Watch for physical decline in ability to care for themself. Get hospice involved earlier rather than later to build trust with team.
