I have stage 111 lung cancer with COPD but can't eat much anymore. Don't want chemo. How fast do you die from losing weight?

Eat: Eat smaller meals throughout the day and try to drink boost or ensure "milkshakes" three times a day. There are medicines to help you as well talk to your oncologist. http://www.lungcanceralliance.org/what-if-i-am-diagnosed/side-effect-management/loss-of-appetite.html
