My was diagnosed stage 3 lung cancer in 06/12 and went to his brain 12/12. He is home now with 1 bed sore on his tailbone. How can I treat this at home without medical advice. Any info would help.

Thanks Linda

If you have not done these yet, make him sleep on his sides.  By putting pillow on his back.  Put cream on it. Massage it while putting cream. If his bed is hosptial bed which moves, move it up and down.  I hope it helps.
