We found out in October that my dad has lung cancer. They scheduled surgery very quickly, but my father has other breathing problems, so we wanted a 2nd opinion so we went into NY for another opinion. They recommended that other tests be performed to make sure it was the right thing. When we came back to ours to have the tests they seemed to take their time, and as if they were jealous we went for another opinion. Finally after getting the tests done, after arguing with them,1.5 months has gone by,and NOw the cancer has progressed that he cannot have the surgery. I feel that maybe it was our fault we went there and time was wasted,He will start Chemo and radiation this week. I am so consumed with doing all i can for him, i cannot even function on my own things- I try to read up on it as much as i can. My mom needs to talk to someone, i feel lost and i don't know what else i can do. I go to all his appointments.I feel that i am not doing enough.IS this normal, how about nutrition?
