Dad was initially diagnosed with cancer in March. Was then told in April it had spread to his liver and stomach so was now stage 4 with a 1-2 year survival rate. He had his first chemo (EOX) in May which left him so ill we had to take him to A&E 3 times in 4 days as he couldn't keep any food/water/pills down and he could hardly move. After about a week or so, he got better, and by the end of the third week he was eating again, happy, feeling relatively 'normal' He had his second lot of treatment last week, and whilst he hasn't been sick (he got given new pills), he feels absolutely awful, in some ways he wants to be sick. The acid is horrific and he can't stop belching and hiccuping which in turn makes him nauseus. He cannot take gaviscon as it causes insomnia. He is also suffering from depression this time - my dad has no time for mental health (i have suffered depression before so i know how horrible it is) and that's the worse thing. He won't get out of bed, he doesn't want to do anything, is hardly talking, doesn't see the point in eating or drinking as he can't taste it. It's horrible. He has stopped taking any of his pills until he sees the consultant tomorrow - and he has a CT scan next week - i'm hoping if the scan shows the chemo is doing something, it might psychologically help him push through.
