    Problem with doctor

    Oh No

    Patient's doctor gave terminal diagnosis and that's it. Patient wants hospice care and doctor said will refer about six months until end. When discussed seeing another doctor, was told would need lots of tests to do so. There are visits every month or so, but no help suggested with fatigue, nausea, and diarrhea. Patient cannot leave house due to condition. Isn't there something or somewhere to get help?
