No, it is not a bed sore. The doctor said her weight loss is the cause of the pain. We have used the 'donut cushions,' eggshell mattress pads, etc. I will check with Hospice on Monday. Our family physician had told us that if we signed up with Hospice that they would not allow her to be treated for example, pneuomonia. He said they would just allow it to run it's course. I have trouble enough sitting idly by while we're having to let this cancer run its course. I will get with Hospice on Monday and get their services and assistance information first hand. Thanks for the advice.
