Hi, I'm 17 my dad is 58 and we were told on Friday he has terminal cancer.
My dad started feeling poorly in april which he first thought was food poisoning. He gradually began to get worse. He couldn't keep anything down. Then in june he finally went to the doctors (typical man) after weeks and weeks of tests and the doctors saying it was an infection and many others things and different drugs he was only getting worse. He finally was given a sick note from work around 5 weeks ago. 4 weeks ago he went to the doctors for a blood test then recieved a phonecall to go into hospital for 24 hours as his kidneys were failing. 26 days later he is still there and we. Have just been told he has terminal cancer. A primary cancer? In the gi tract and spread to his stomach. They will not do anything with the cancer until they controll the sickness. They say they might do chemotherapy but this will only be to prolong his life if they decide to do it. He has lost 5 stone since may, 1 of which was fluid they drained from his stomach.
I can't believe that only just before eid he was my normal dad. Now he's unrecognisable, so poorly and hasn't the energy to speak. I'm a daddy's boy, an only child, I just don't know what to do with myself. I just want my dad back which I no isn't going to happen. I don't know what to do?
Has anyone been through a similar experience? Will he Atleast get a little better before he goes?
