My dad is still recovering from his radiation treatments. These have really made him weak and tired. He had the radiation on his brain and chest (external beam radiation).
Along with being tired, he is still unbalanced on his feet when walking. He sometimes seems like he has a shortness of breath and has been spiking a fever. His appetite hasn't been great but he still eats throughout the day. The doctor told us it's important he stays hydrated and drinks high protein drinks daily. He has been doing that well.
His shortness of breath worries me because I can tell he's breathing a bit heavier since his radiation. Apparently this is a side effect. Has anyone else had this before? Also the balance issues concern me, but they say it may be due to his brain radiation. Its just all so overwhelming !! He says he has no pain which is a good thing.
He has CT scan at Dana farber on March 14th. We are praying so hard that this brings us good news. Keeping faith in God is so important.
