Last phase of his journey

The patient with gastric cancer has now come to the part where there is no turning  back. His cancer has come back with metastasis to the rectum which has obstructed it. A stent had to be placed to relieve the obstruction. Aside from this, pulmonary and hepatic metastasis are also present.

But still.... he is adamant and hoping that chemotherapy might not be the only way out now. I don't know why he is really against it. But I respect his resolve.

However, time is not on his side on this matter anymore.
