Caring for my husband with late-stage lung cancer

Hello @turtle115 and welcome to Mayo Connect,

I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's suffering. I know it is difficult for him, and also difficult for you to watch this journey he is taking right now.

As Merry said, I'm wondering if you have asked the hospice nurse about these bumps? I found that hospice is very good at an understanding regarding the late stages of the disease and they might be able to explain it to you.

I would also like to invite you to another discussion on Connect dealing with advanced cancer. Here is the link, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/talking-frankly-about-living-with-advanced-cancer/. Please take a look at this discussion group and post about your husband's situation there as well.

We also have a Caregiver's Group. Here is a link to that discussion group, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/caregivers/. You will find many members of this group who are dealing with the same experiences and emotions that you are having now.

Do you have a support system in place for you and your husband? I'm thinking about family, friends, church, etc.?

Yes, good support. We FaceTime our 4 children every night to say goodnight. We figured if it be his last night the children would find comfort in knowing they talked with their father "last night". We are living in an Assisted Living facility so we have a lot of people around.
