URGENT-- Small Cell Lung & Emphasemia



I reqested information earlier regarding post surgery pain.  Now things have
worsened.
My father-in-law has quit eating and drinking.  In the past three weeks he's
dropped 
down to 126 lbs. from 165 lbs.

He has absolutely no energy, no appetite.  His small cell lung cancer was
removed
March 1996, his entire right lung.  His remaining lung is "severly" damaged
with 
emphasemia (sp).

Hospice has been brought in.  Now discussions are questioning whether he may
 have
a brain tumor.

Any ideas?
