Hi all, got a question. Brief history, hubby dx Feb 2004 Stage IV, mets to greater omentum & 13/21 lymph nodes. Completed 6 mos. chemo (5FU, Avastin, Oxiliaplatin & Leukovorin). In Dec 2004, found out had mets to abdominal cavity. Is taking alternative route instead of chemo this time.
Lately, he has been very forgetful, which is so out of character for him. A couple of weeks ago he left his car door open all night (on the new sports car!!) and last week he left the trunk open. He has been so moody also. He snaps at everyone! I can tolerate it, but our kids (8 & 4) always end up running to their rooms in tears. Then he feels bad and he starts to cry! Yesterday, our son made him First Holy Communion and we had all the grandparents down. He would put things down and two minutes later couldn't find them. Then last night his stomach looked bloated. When I felt it, it was very hard (could this be ascites?).
I'm very worried and I know he is too. We don't know what to expect or what's going to happen next. We have an appt with his oncologist tomorrow and I plan to discuss this with him. Sometimes Scott get's embarrassed about things he does and says, so he may not want to mention these things to his doc. That's why I need to go to his appts with him, to be the naggy wife!
If anyone has experienced any of this, or has any input, would appreciate it! Thanks and prayers!
