My dad was diagnosed with a brain tumor Sept 28th and the dr.s suspect the primary source is in the lungs. He has had CT scans, PET scans, blood tests etc. but nothing shows up. He's had the tumor removed and three weeks of radiation. He is so weak and tired he doesn't even want to get out of bed. Has anyone experienced this before?

Please don't forget the trauma of the diagnosis, along with all the physical assaults of being diagnosed and treated for cancer. the emotional aspects can be severe also. talk to Dad about depression and where he is, feeling wise.
