Topic: Chronic stomach ache - sign of worst things to come?
Hello everyone -
My dad has been getting weaker and losing weight over the last month. We are not sure if this is a sign of the chemo, the tumor or both (most likely). He says he is very weak and tired and complains about chronic stomach pain. He describes it as a colic type pain and is sometimes more acute after he eats. As far as I know he has not had any vomit and treats the pain with over the counter medicine so it's probably no to a critical point.
He is not jaundiced or feels any other major pain points so I;m wondering if it might be more a chemo driven problem together with all the additional medication he's taking or if it might be the tumor taking it's course.
If anyone has any experiences with this type of problem please let me know. I would love to know if there is anything I can do to help dad.
Best of luck to everyone.
