Sohopeful Posted February 19, 2004 Share Posted February 19, 2004 My Dad's cancer has come back. In Dec. he started having pain in his shoulder so off to the Dr. he went. They found a new tumor in his spine. In the hospital to take care of the tumor in the spine... the found 2 new brain mets, new lung tumor, tumor on the adrenal gland & the tumor in the spine. He has started radiation on the spine. Went in the hospital again for something I can't spell .. but I think it's like the gama knife. He has now lost so much weight he has become dizzy.... The Dr. says this is because of the weight loss. Dad was givin the same of something to help him gain weight Scandical However in our search to find it... someone at a health food store told us it wasn't good for cancer. Something about it is emtpy calories and fed them. My dad wont eat anything sweat. If he doesn't gain weight he wont be able to do Chemo. Also we are looking to try alternative therapy anyone have any suggestions? He is taking IP-6 Thank you very much, Michelle Dad stage 4 April 03 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
