Topic: Tomorrow Dr. Appt.
I don't post too often, but do visit the site frequently and get a lot of good information from you all.
Tuesday my dad sees the oncologist, and I believe she's going to suggest stopping all treatment. To recap briefly, he was diagnosed in Dec. 2007, unresectable, one Therasphere treatment, two courses of Xeloda. He is in pain and nauseous nearly all the time, and we believe getting depressed. My brother talked to the doctor the other day, and she told him if an infection didn't get him first, he probably only has a couple of months left. His wife wants to get another opinion (he's had 3) and she believes in vitamins, nutrition, etc., but he is too weak to go anywhere else, and is the stubborn sort who had made his decision on doctors/hospital/treatment, and is by-god going to stick by that.
My brother and I will be at the appointment on Tuesday. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we deal with the aftermath, and figure out next steps for our family.
