My father has Stage IV, Small cell lung cancer. He is receiving 2nd series of chemo this week. He has been diagnosed for 8 weeks and since that time he has not been with us mentally because of the drugs. He has very few lucid moments. He has to have constant care. He is miserable, confused, constantly wanting to move, never at peace. The cancer is in his bones and liver, but not in his brain. I want to know, if the chemo works, will he have to remain on pain medicine, is it possible for him to get back to some degree of normal. He has been the backbone of a very close family, and the hardest part of all is not being able to get through to him to tell him what is going on so he will understand.
