my sister in law just got told she has a month to live due to gastric cancer, she had ovarian cancer 1 year ago & got hysterectomy & was told she was cancer free, now she has cancer in stomach. one dr said take her home & get on hospice, the other said they can do chemo & radiation. i remember the same thing happened to my dad who had pancreatic cancer, one gave that glimmer of hope, which he chose, & didnt give him any more time, just sickness. we want to know what she will be dealing with in this last month or so, what will we expect cuz dr said its very painful. will she be incapacitated? any info will help, thanks
