Hi, my mom has NSCLC Stage 4, she has undergone 10 chemo treatments, with the only side effects being extreme fatigue and lack of appetite (not that that makes it any better). Lately all she does is sleep, she can sleep for 24 hours straight with no food, no pain meds/meds in general or anything! She still is smoking believe it or not, and lately she wont even wake up to do that. Is this a normal thing? I am freaking out, I keep checking her to see if she is alive, God forgive me she puts the oxygen on and sleeps all day. I am terrified and sick to my stomach. This chemo is sucking the life out of my beautiful mom and this cancer is destroying the mother I know and love. I feel as if the end is rapidly approaching, I know it's in God's hands, but has anyone encountered this with their loved ones? She is on a morphine patch, but has been for months now =(
