    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Feeding my wife issues. When I try to have my wife eat and drink, she fights me all the way; however, she tells me that she wants to get better and does not want to return to the any medical facility for not eating or drinking. She eats good from my daughters but they have their families to take care so they are not able to be here most of the time. I am thinking about having a home health aide to feed her. I don't know what else to do. Any recommendations?

    As mentioned, my wife has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer to her Lungs and brain lesions from breast cancer. She has had 15 treatment of whole brain radiation. She grew weak from the radiation, so her doctor is reluctant to start Chemo; however, my wife is taking Fermara, hormone therapy. The lesions are fluid filled. We are working on her strength, so she can start chemo. My wife is home with me working through her situation.

    1) What can we expect from her diagnosis?

    Clinical Trial: If a clinical trial will help my wife. I am all for it. Currently, I have submitted a request to Banner / MD Anderson. The doctor will review my wife's medical record. We are should receive a response from the doctor by 03/09/2012.

    Other Care (Hospitalization): My wife is currently in the hospital but she is weak on her left side. We are searching for a home aide and/or home healthcare. We are financially tied. What can we do?

    Side Effects (Nausea/Vomiting): My wife vomited two days in a row. Her appetite is down. My wife has had whole brain radiation for 15 treatments. What can my wife and I expect?
