Sohopeful Posted July 19, 2003 Share Posted July 19, 2003 My Father has just completed his radiation treatments and is now on a month Chem break. A break very much welcomed..... he has become very weak. He also has developed a tremble. My mother believes the tremble is caused by him laying in bed all day and sleeping. He (back before we got the news of cancer) was a "very" active man. No grass growing under his feet. Now lies in bed all day watching TV & sleeping. I know he is very depressed and who isn't from the shock of Lung Cancer stage 4! So my ? is anybody else have the trembles? Do you think getting him up and doing things again will help get rid of them? Do you think its caused by "weak" muscles? I also want to add a Thank you everyone to all on this site ! The support and words of encouragement is awsome!!! I come to this site often and read (ok lurk) but I don't post to often. Thanks again and Take care, Michelle Dad given cancer news in April 2003 Stage 4 mets to brain & spine Brain operation to remove 90% of tumor May 2003 Started rad & chemo May 2003 Break from treatment July 2003 Pray to God to give my Father a Pass to live a much longer life!!!
