My husband has end stage laryngeal cancer. No treatment options. He had a trach tube put in September to help with breathing. The lymph nodes on neck and collarbone are growing. Some days there is blood coming out under trach. Went to Dr. last week to have trach tube changed. Some bleeding upon change. Dr. said everything looked good. What does that mean? He never commented on lymph nodes. I know the cancer is spreading. Today 11/18 husband having difficulty breathing through trach tube, becoming more restricted, there is blood under it and his shoulder hurts. What direction should I take? Not much help from the Dr. Anyone out there who has experienced this?
