My father had his whole stomach and part of his colon out in March '04. He then started chemo and radiation. The radiation is over (5 weeks ago) and his chemo which he last had 5 weeks ago was supposed to resume 2 weeks ago but he is SOO sick they have postponed it. He has been on the TPN for some time now. Cannot eat or drink ANYTHING and is wondering if this is normal when he's had no treatment in almost 5 weeks? We are all suffering and I know he's wondering if he'll ever get better. Would love to hear any stories of similar experiences!!! Thanks
