In the final stage of lung cancer, the person is sedated or given high dosages of medication to decrease the pain. The person is usually bed ridden. A breathing tube is applied. Sedation and time is the answer to the ending.


Answer by  GK1 (152)

The symptoms of final stage lung cancer commonly are pain, weakness, shortness of breath, and fatigue. Educating family members regarding care during the final hours is critical. Management of symptoms by all members of the health care team is helpful as well as support to family members. You may wish to get a hospice care team involved to support family.

From what I have seen personally, it can vary from person to person. Some are just tired and seem to welcome the end. Food no longer matters or just no appetite. Fatigue seems to be a constant companion. Some just slip into a coma due to cancer spreading into the brain. While others are in constant pain.
