I really wish I knew what the answer to this was - all I can say is that you are not alone in your worry. My Dad is very much the same - diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma and given months to live, very poor prognosis. At the outset he was quite upbeat but now just sits and stares into space. My mother thinks he could do more just now, but he just has this horrendous sad, frightened look in his face which is hard to bear. I'm sorry I can't offer much of a reply in terms of medication or counselling, but I hope that gentle encouragement to make the most of what time is left will help. I really hope so.
