Doctors cure and treat.  I think they are at a complete loss when they aren't able to do so. 

I am a care giver to an 18 yo who was given 3 to 6 months at the end of Nov.  I did anything she wanted which was mainly food oriented.  

March 11 she stopped eating.  She hasn't been out if bed or awake for about 5 days now.  So in answer to what wut? Is your loved one will might get headaches?  Might get blurred vision. Might have trouble speaking. Mood swings. 

He should enroll in hospice asap as it is the greatest most helpful 24/7 thing.

If you haven't started hospice, do so immediately. Your brother's oncologist should be able to get that started for you. They will be a tremendous support system.
