New here

My Dad was also diagnosed with stage 4 that was already spread to liver, nymph nodes, and kidney. He was diagnosed on Oct. 28, 2011. He was admitted to the hospital for sever dyhydration and had a port and feeding tube in by the next day. One week later he started chemo and went on a trial. After 8 wks he had another scan and the cancer had shrank by 50 percent. Daddy still was not able to swallow solids and had alot of really bad side effects. By now he had lost about 70 lbs. Just last week he started feeling more tired and just feeling down. We went last wk for another scan and the cancer had started growing again. So doctors changed chemo and took him off research trail. He seems to feel alittle better today. He even drove himself to his favorite fishing hole yesterday. It was really nice weather. We go every wk now for new chemo. Only advice I can give you is everyone is different. So everyone will react different to everything. No matter how much research you do or how many questions you may want to ask, I dont think anyone can tell you what you really want to hear. I just know this. I love my Daddy very much. And I'm gonna enjoy all the time I got left with him and not let this cancer consume us. Only God has the last word and Its him I seem to talk to the most, even more here lately. My Daddy is 67, I am an only child but I am married with four children on my own. I don't know if I can be of any help to you but if you have any questions I would be glad to try.
