Recently it was confirmed through an abdomen CT scan and colonoscopy that my father had a tumor in the Cecum, along with lymph node enlargement and possible metastasis at the lungs. We've just done a biopsy on Tuesday and we're currently awaiting the pathology report. We will be speaking with the oncologist on this coming tuesday. From what I read from the CT scan things are not looking up as it all seems fairly late stage.
That said, while I haven't givent up, I plan on making the most of my time with my father. This weekend I play on going on a hike with my father, mother, and my girlfriend. One thing I wanted to ask you all was how streneous a hike could/should my father take? Also, what type of foods would be ideal for him? I've been told a mixed bag of information. Low salt/preservatives, low sugar?
I haven't been able to find any dietary information for cancer patients who have yet to start any form of treatment.
