I am a caregiver to my best friends mom who is like a mom to me. She had bilateral mastectomy 4 years ago and now has multiple mets to the brain.
Is now done with whole brain radiation. She is on Decadron, Armidex. They have told us it is terminal, but she doesn't want hospice, doesn't want anything but comfort care and basically doesn't want any of us to talk about it. It is a huge elephant in the room and no one can talk about it. She sleeps so much and is worried that she is missing out on life. I do not know what to expect about what comes next physically. Her doctor isn't much help. If anyone has gone through caring for someone dying with brain mets please write and it will be so appreciated.
