I'm looking for any info that can help prepare me for this. My father has a very large tumor on his bladder and is a very high grade. The doctor(s) say he won't make it through surgery so they're going to be starting radiation and chemotherapy. I'm scared because I don't know what to expect from this. They have given my father 6 mos to 1 yr. Is he going to spend the last 6 mos of his life being sick all of the time? He has lost a lot of weight and the doctors keep telling him to eat more... he's eating as much as he can, but he's still losing weight. What will happen to him once the Chemo and radiation start? Do you think Chemo and radiation are a good idea?? Please help!
