Stages of Gallbladder Cancer
My mother was just sent home from the hospital to die. There is nothing more medically that the doctors can do. What should we expect from her? Hospice is involved. She shakes and is very restless. The cancer is all through her abdomen, but she is very alert and responsive except when heavily medicated for pain. She is hooked up to an iv for hydration.
Your question does not fall within the scope of my topic area or that of any other current NetWellness expert. However, the number of available "Ask an Expert" topic areas continues to increase, so be sure to check back. To help you find an expert that can answer a particular question, there is a "topic description" located at the top of each "Ask an Expert" topic area.
