Hi everybody ... my Dad was (officially) diagnosed a week ago wtih Stage 4 - mets to liver, he's been in pain for a month. We;re meeting with the oncologist tomorrow, and he's getting his chemo port put in Friday and supposed to start chemo next week. We are still worried about his liver. But he has started sleeping ALL day long ... he gets up to eat a little and then goes back to sleep. Although he is bloated (has some fluid and air in belly per the ER last week, but nothing to cause concer they said) he has no fever, no swelling around feet or ankles. Just really so tired, I'm sure the cancer takes a lot of of you but this is so not like him. My Mom is so worried because she saw her own Father pass away from lung cancer and all he did was sleep before. Can anyone tell me if they experienced EXTREME fatigue when dealing with their Stage 4 Colon Cancer ... I just want to give my Mom some postive feedback. We want to fight this thing soo bad but I'm worried with him sleeping so much he isn't fighting. thank you!
