My sister was dign. with lung cancer in 11/06 she had half her lung removed along with part of her clavicle and part of her 1st 3 ribs. She was getting really bad headaches in feb and march they determined she had a brain tumor that had spread from her lung. She had some of the tumor removed and everything was going great. She then had a massive stroke 2 weeks after the surgery. She is in rehab now. Last week she had a seizure so they did a brain scan and discovered that the radiation didnt shrink what was left of the tumor and they found another lesion growing next to the tumor. I am her primary care giver and I dont know how much more she can take or what her future is but my mother keeps insisting that I put her in a nursing home and forget about her.I cant do that. She is still fighting even after all of this. And the doctors havent given up either. If anyone has any ideas on how to deal with pushy releatives please let me know.
