First off I love you all for reading.
Dad was dx last year with CC stage 4 he has been on chemo. He had sudden onset of pain and i took him to the ER. He was due for a scan anyway so they did a CT scan with contrast. The Onc said the mass in his colon looked smaller (great news) but initally didnt see anything in the area where he had pain (lower right abdomen and groin). I was told a radiologist looked at the scan and found a 3mm Kidney stone. Dad was given flowmax and was going to be discharged today but he had more pain overnight. His Onc said there may be another stone but wouldnt that have shown in the scan? Shouldnt they x-ray or sonogram? I am concerned with the quality of care and I am his proxy and no help. I want to make the best decisions here and Dad is so nervous he is talking crazy. In addition, since his visit he hasnt been able to pass stool. He has a stent in the colon (was put in shortly after initial dx). I dont know what to do....
