My dad has stomach cancer which they can't operate on as its spread to his liver. They are giving him chemo which invloves putting a tube in the upper part of his body which then connects to a bag of chemo(this is changed weekly). Ever since hes started on this he seems to have gone very weak and wonder if this is normal(hes only been on the a week). Hes on this for 18weeks and wonders if its like this the whole way through. Is there any signs its working? Anyone with any sucess with this treatment? I would love to hear from anyone who could help.

Hello,

The easiest way to locate other members with similar experiences is to type keywords (such as the name of the chemotherapy drug your father is on) on the search bar at the top of the home page. You can refine your search by clicking on the different categories of content listed below the list of keyword matches that you get from your search. The major categories of content on CSN are discussion boards, personal web pages, etc. For example, if you are looking for a personal web page, you can limit your search to personal web pages only by clicking on the "personal web pages" category. Remember that you must be logged in if you want to post anything on a discussion boards, view personal web pages, use the chat room, etc.

You can also contact the American Cancer Society's National Cancer Information Center. Cancer Information Specialists are available 24 hours a day and may be able to provide you with information on the treatment you father is receiving.

I wish you father well on his treatment.

Take care and be well,
