My dad has been diagnosed with Stage 4 metastic colon cancer. It appears to be in his colon and liver. He is 60 years old and otherwise has been in great health. He has been going thru chemo for about 5 or 6 months. He has a 3 day chemo session going home with the pump and getting it off on day 3. One of his medicines are avastin. Thats about all I know for sure. He goes to chemo and everyone seems to be doing just fine. He is feeling quite alone. He is in pain most of the time despite all his pain meds. We read all this information about people with his condition that are going to the store, doing things shortly after chemo, and basically still have a life. My dad is pretty much just stuck in bed all the time watching tv. And the doctors were surprised to hear that he is not well enough to get up and move around. I am just wondering if there is anyone else out there that has been through his similar situation. I am trying to find him some other examples so he can have some idea what to expect or at least what others are going thru. He occasionally has nausea but most of the time its the pain and discomfort that keeps him homebound. That and the anxiety of the unknown, like going out and unexpectantly getting sick. Just appreciate any info. I pray for him constantly and pray that God will heal and bless all of you!
