Re: Bypass surgery - info anyone?

Hi my dad had bypass surgery in October due to blocked intestines caused by the cancer.
He was quite ill in hospital for a week and it’s a long recovery of not managing much food, he lost a lot of weight this time and appetite has never been same since. Hope your dad manages ok x

Re: FOLFIRINOX - 12 rounds

Hello and thank you for your replies.
My dad was diagnosed in sept and I honestly didn’t think he would see Christmas. To me he looks better after each session so I’m living in hope he is going to have as many good months after the 12 rounds in April as possible. He really deserves it

FOLFIRINOX - 12 rounds

Hello
My dad has just had round 6/12 of chemo and had rescan before final 6. We are awaiting the results next week.
I imagine he will manage the full 12 rounds as coping quite well. Can anyone tell me experience of what happened after the 12 rounds and how your loved ones did?
Thank you

Re: Feeling robbed.

Sounds like your dad is doing quite well considering. My dad is really wanting to fight this but the nausea feeling constantly gets him down. He had to have bypass surgery in October due to the cancer blocking his intestines and since then his appetite has been bad. Really frustrating because til th...
