My sister has colon cancer that has spread to all major organs. Put n hospice morphine drip she is not receiving food or water. What is life expancy its been 21
Hello, I have a lot of experience with hospice patients. If she is not receiving any form of liquids she will likely only live for a few days or perhaps a week. The important thing is to keep her comfortable. Dying people do not desire food or water because they do not need it. I'm sorry you are having to go through this. It must be very difficult to watch.
