My Dad has just been diagnosed with non small cell lung cancer. Final staging has not been completed. We don't have all the info or recommendations yet. The problem right now is he has been in the hospital for almost 2 weeks and his mental status has gotten very agitated, angry, and now paranoid. He is 80 yrs old and has been divorced from my Mom for many years and has lived alone and been very independent. He has been on steroids for a flare up of wheezing and COPD, and the doctors think this may be causing some of his aggression, but they say they are weaning them as fast as they can but he still needs them for his lungs. Now he has started telling me and my sister, and my brother not to come see him or call. He says we are driving him crazy by being too nice to him. No matter what anyone does it makes him more agitated.I don't know if it is the drugs, or the hospital or a reaction to learning he has cancer. I know he will need help to go throgh this but he is pushing all his loved ones away. Any advice or similar experiences??
