My dad has terminal lung cancer and is now under the palliative care team who are trying to make him as pain free as possible. He is on steroids, slow releasing morphine and various other tablets. He is sleeping more in the day and is finding it difficult to breath at times. He has a relaxation cd to help with his breathing but still at times gets himself into a real pickle (which at times is hard to see my dad like that.) He has a hand held fan and a stair lift. Is there anything else I can get to help my dad. He is going to ask his consultant for some oxygen when he goes in a weeks time. Just really wanted to know what are the next steps. What can we do as a family to help dad and really get us prepared for the next struggle of this awful disease.
