My mother was diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer in 2001 and had her right lower lobe removed. The doctors said there was no need for chemo or radiation afterward. Well, one and a half years ago they said it came back and was in both lungs, yet very small. No real treatment was administered because she is elderly and has congestive heart failure to. All of a sudden her memory has completely failed her. She seems weaker and leans to the right side when sitting down. She repeats over and over and over again: "Help me" or "Where am I" or Why am I here" at night she tells me she is scared. This is a woman that has been very independent and lived alone most of her life. Has anyone seen or experienced this before? How long do I expect her to suffer like this, before the end?
Thank you so much,
