germ cell tumor

My brother is in hsopital with a suspected germ celltumor - seminoma - he has been in for over 3 weeks and they are only just coming to us with a diganosis - in the meantime he has had emergency chemo but is very very poorly. He can't eat or drink properly and has been on oxygen as his aorta was bloked - he has two stents put in. His face is very very puffy and he can't sleep but very little seems to be being done to relive his discomfort. He is 41 and the father of three children this is very distressing for everyone concerned as no one seems to be telling us anything about the treatement he will have etc. Has anyone experienced this form of cancer?
