    It depends on the parts of the body it spread to! There are different drugs that can be used to manage pain and this person should work with their oncologist on this if and when it should happen! They may also want to look into hospice as they will work with the doctor when the patient isn’t up to it and help them and their family through this transition! Losing your ability to live is the definition of dieing! They will have a loss of energy and sleep more! They will eat and drink less! It is a process our bodies go through!
