My mother has lung cancer with mets to the brain. She has undergonce several surgeries the last being brain surgery to remove the tumor that was causing her to have seizures, and lose use of her left side. She is 59 years old this year.
In the last 2 day she has fallen repeatedly, and has had a progressive change in physical behavior.
Due to her lack of insurance, no Dr. will schedule her a MRI or CT scan to see if the tumor is growing back. Are we supposed to just sit back and watch her continually deteriorate? Because that is what is happening.
We don't know if there is a tumor regrowth that is causing her to regress, and it is very frustrating and discouraging.
Does anyone know what else we can do to help her? We have tried to get her medicaid but they keep denying her. She is too young for Medicare.
If anyone has any suggestions my family and I are all ears.
