My Mom has Lung Cancer that is also in her brain and pancreis. She went into remission for a couple months around the beginning of the year but it came back two months ago. Since then she has had radiation and started Chemo again. Recently she has been in and out of the hospital with stomach pain (from the pancreis) and an infection. In the past two weeks all of her problems have cleared up and the doctors say she is doing fine (the cancer is responding to treatments) but she still is refusing to eat and sleeps all day. My dad is the primary care giver with my sister and mom stopped listening to them. We all ahve talked to her about the importance of keeping her strength up but she doesn't seem to care. We have gone as far as buying anything that she "says" doesn't make her sick. I know it is depression but she won't admit it. I just don't know what to do. If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them... She is supposed to have Chemo on Monday but we are afraid her not eating will just put her back in the hospital.
What can I do???
