I know I have asked the question already, but I would like some more input. My dad will soon be starting his treatment for IV base tongue cancer. I work 2-10 at night and am worried about being able to care for him. My mom is home and able to do some things, but can not drive. I am trying to plan if I will need to be off work for an extened period of time or just days here and there. The questions I have are:
Were you able to drive yourself to chemo and rad through the whole treatment time?
How much help did you need to do daily activites like eating, bathing and normal things?
Did most of you feel like doing things around the house or did you spend most of your time resting and sleeping?
My dad does not work, but loves to go to the grocery store, drive and do things around the house. I am worried that he will not be able to do these things and that will cause him to get very depressed.
Also, did you lose your voice?
Thank you again and I am sorry for all of the questions. Since it is just my mom and I to get through this with him I kinda want to know what to expect.
So far he is very postive about everything and very healthy other then this.
