my dad has stage IIA non-bulky - nod. sclerosis, He is going to have his 3rd chemo treatment, he has to go the full six months of chemo, I thought with early stage fewer cycles were prescribed. My dad is age 70 and he was never sick a day in his life, he said he never felt so good in his life, he's a very positive person and he is does not look or act his age. My dad is very active, even after his chemo treatments, he continues to go out, he hasn't had any nausea, but he is starting to get the fatigue, but seems to be tolerating it,( he lost his hair) did not take that well, considering he had a full head of hair. we still anticipate everytime he has a treatment how he's going to feel, this is going to be an emotional rollercoaster. Can anoyone send me some encouraging words. His oncologist gave him a very good prognosis. Please refrain from really bad news, my sisters and I have aged 5 years since we found out about my dads disease.
