The doctors have weened my mom off decadron-she has lung cancer with brain mets. Stage 4.
She was okay before..yes she was a bundle of energy and she ate alot but this was better than the alternative before brain surgery-couldn't talk..no balance..incontinent. Now mom is sick-she didn't get out of bed today, didn't eat...she said she blacked out at one point. If she was okay on the decadron than why go off of it. Why should she be sick and
visibly start dying when the decadron seems to give life?
