Howdy guys and gals,
Firstly just wanted to say a big thanx to everyone that responded to me the other day! xo Stacy, I will pass on your pointers to my dad -thanx.
Well my Dad went ok on Thursday at the hospital although that night at home he had unbareable back pain and also pain in his jaw and throat. He has had a lot of nausea over the past few days and also a bit fatigued. Its kinda hard for him to eat when everything makes him feel sick, but hes tryin. His oncologist said the first few days would be the most uncomfortable. Dad was given a whole pile of preventatives for nausea, diarrhea, mouth ulcers etc.. But the one thing that has made me so happy is his attitude is full of positivity and he is prepared to fight this all the way! yay!
I did find out that the trial drug is 'avastin' but we are not being told whether he is taking it or a dummy. I am interested to hear from anyone who has or is using it and what they think of it.
Anyways I'm thinkin of you all and thanks again for the kind words, it lifts me up :)
