Topic: Sensitive Questions
My husband was diagnosed in December and was not a surgical candidate. He made the choice to not have any treatment based on his experience with his dad and grandma who both died of pancreatic cancer.
My husband has a stent with a biliary drain bag. It has been working well. We have had it replaced a couple of times. Lately we have noticed bile seeping out where the tube comes out of his abdomen. He also seems a little jaundice. Has anybody else had a problem like this?
My second question is sensitive. My husband for months has told me he is not ready to die. Today he has told me he is ready and wants to die because he is tired. Someone told me that most people go pretty fast once the say they are ready. I know everybody is different, but has anybody had any experience with this? I hate to see him suffer so much.
We do have hospice coming in once a week right now. They're not saying much as they are always so positive. I just don't know if we are coming to the end. He seems to sleep all the time and has his days and nights mixed up. I appreciate any and all responses and advice.
