SheriB Posted May 10, 2020 Share Posted May 10, 2020 I don’t know if I am posting this in the right place, but I am hoping someone can help. My dad was diagnosed with Stage IV adenocarcinoma with bone mets about a month ago. It spread to the C2/C3 area of his neck and he completed 10 rounds of radiation. I asked for SBRT but they said they needed to go wider than that therapy could provide. He had his first round of chemo (carboplatin/alitma) and keytruda two days before finishing up radiation. He is absolutely suffering from the radiation. His throat is so bad he will not eat or drink, he is depressed, and saying that he isn’t doing any more treatment. He also developed thrush and mouth sores from the chemo. He is on painkillers (oxy) with no relief. He has had to go in to get fluids via IV. It has been 8 days since he completed radiation and there is no improvement. Does anyone have any words of advice, help, ideas, suggestions? He also has COPD. Thank you!!!
