Its been alittle while since i last posted. My dad was diagnosed with stage four esophageal cancer in lymphs, liver and kidney back in Oct of 2011. Since then we had a trail for alittle while and had a really great scan at eight weeks of 50% shrinkage. Continued on till cancer outsmarted chemo and changed to next chemo. Had 2 treatments then white blood count dropped so they gave him a break for a couple of weeks. Came back and white blood count was normal but he lost total memory. This lasted for a couple of days. In the mean time they have done brain mri, eeg, ultrasound on his vessels, checked his health completely from sugar to dehydration. All test came out normal for a man of his age which is 67. We go back to cancer doctor in a few weeks to see talk about chemo again. The only thing the brain doctor said it sound like brain failure from the chemo. Guess I'm just looking for anyone out there that has experienced this brain failure. And if so did they ever get back to normal. Dad is still real confused about alot of stuff. And just real tired. Doesnt care to feed himself anymore.(He has a feeding tube.) He has lost about 90 pounds since Oct. Other than the cancer they can not find anything else wrong with him and he is in no pain at all.
