I am a new member to this site as of today and think it's absolutely wonderful!
We all need some support!
I am 36 years old and my dad was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer this last May and underwent surgery to have 2/3 of his right lung removed.
He had seven weeks (once a week) of chemo and 35 days of radiation. His treatments ended over two months ago and he is still extremely tired, depressed and continues to lose weight although his appetite has increased greatly.
I am sooooo upset about his Oncologist as he has been a jerk since the beginning. It seems as though he's just prescribing medication to keep him occupied. My dad is the absolute greatest man I have ever known and truly does not deserve this as NO one does.
Does anyone know if these symptoms are normal for this point in time? He is scheduled to have another PET scan done this Thursday to see if any tumors or cells have re-appeared.
I keep looking for new web sites that could tell me more but I'm getting quite confused!!!!!!!
