Hello all. My sweet father was diagnosed in March with a stage 1 intrahepatic tumor. Even though he was 87 at the time, he went through y90 treatments and did remarkably well. He has no pain, but is beginning to decline. Due to several falls (he doesn't seem to have the strength to keep himself upright) he went to the ER. His sugar numbers were through the roof, although he was not diabetic until now. And his kidneys are shutting down. He is resting comfortably in a nursing home, and we have already begun hospice. He is very alert most days, which breaks our hearts, but we are trying to make the most of our remaining time. I've read through some of the posts on this site, and almost all talk about the horrible pain. Is this something that Dad will eventually have, or since his CC is primary and the tumor is small could it be that he won't have to face that particular challenge? My heart goes out to each and every one of you!
