So sad... I don’t think my husband can survive this

Hi All, My husband was diagnosed with EC stage IV. With Mets to his liver and lymph nodes. He was doing so well with Keytruda and a feeding tube. Then this year our doctor suggested radiation for quality of life and maybe end tube feeding. My 6’2 husband was doing well keeping at 180lbs and getting good calorie intake. Then we did the radiation. It was horrible. After 21 of 28 treatments we had to quit because of 24/7 nausea and vomiting. Then i came the fullness. He stopped drinking heating his food. And his feeding tube starting gushing out bile at the insertion site. We went into the hospital and ended up there for 37 days. 2 procedures (1) to insert a EC stent (1) to realign stent. And then surgery to fix his stomach because it wasn’t emptying correctly. Well we’re home now and he can only get approx. 700-1200 calories in a day because he is still not digesting his food. He’s down to 145lbs and is in constant pain. Also, he hasn’t had his Keytruda since June. I can only assume his Cancer is probably going crazy again since he can’t handle is treatment because he’s too weak. So we’re thinking we’re probably going to have to go into hospice if this is the case. I’m so sad and afraid. My husband is the greatest most gentle, giving, loving man I have ever met. I don’t know what I’m going to do if I have to live without him...
