Stage 4 coloncancer since 2010

I have been fighting stage four colon cancer since 2010. I have had five surgeries and countless rounds of different chemo treatment.
I am currently taking chemo and radiation and have been having the expected side effects.
I have one tumor that has to be stabilized with a compression belt.
My concern or questions is that I seem to nod off more often and I am
tired and sleepy all the time.
I understand about the extreme fatigue that goes along with the treatment.
Could this nodding out and sleeping more than normal be a sign that I am entering end stage cancer and about to go into a coma. That is what I feel like.
What are some of the symptoms of end stage cancer?
Thank you for your time?

The signs and symptoms people have vary as their illness continues, and each person has unique needs for information and support. A large tumor in the brain may cause memory problems, balance problems, bleeding in the brain, or loss of function in another body part, which may eventually lead to a coma.
