My dad is about 5 weeks post treatment. He had 35 rads and 6 doeses of cisplaitin. The week before his treatment started he had an issue with being dizzy, after the second dose of chemo they took him off his blood pressure meds. The problem went away, but has now returned.
He says that he is only dizzy when he stands up and then it goes away. He also says when this happens his legs feel really weak. We have talked to both doctors and they do not seem concerned. They told him that is was his blood pressure dropping when standing up.
Has anyone that has been through this treatment have the same issue. I think I have read that this could be a result of the rads. He is only dizzy when first standing not any other times.
I would appreciate any input.
