I have not posted in a while, have been just reading the boards lately .....but I have a question maybe someone can help me with.
Here is the background: my father has colon cancer /diagnosed with mets to 1/3 of the liver this summer. He goes for chemo every other week. After first 8 weeks on chemo the doc said no change in tumors on scan and said that was very good news, also no change in weight since the beginning.
I know they say chemo can cause weight loss because your appetite changes but his first 8 weeks on chemo his weight stayed the same., now a sudden 7 pound drop which is probably about 5% of his body weight.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
