My husband Pat is not doing well. 2nd month of Stivarga (regorafenib) and 2 trips to the ER within that time frame. He is in pain (stomach, groin, hips, back) so once again he is on strong pain meds, Fentanyl patches & Oxycodone. No appetite and losing a lot of weight. He is very depressed and no matter what I do, it's seems that he has given up on the fight. He has fought hard these last 2 and a half years. Do I let go and just make him comfortable as possible? Do I ask his oncologist about hospice? I feel at a total loss on what the right thing is to do for him at this point. 31 years of marriage and never felt this helpless in all that time.
