My dad's very recently been diagnosed with Gastric Cancer and has been told that with treatment he should expect top live for another 12 months. Without treatment, or if the treatment fails, then he's apparently got until the end of the year!
They can't operate and can't give him radiotherapy, so all he can look forward to (!) is 24 weeks of chemotherapy. Obviously he's S**t scared and had heard horror stories of how chemo can affect people. Well ,he had his first treatment last tuesday and so far is not feeling the much reported side effects of the treatment. My question is, does anyone know if the terrible side effects come on immediately, or do they build up over time and the number of treatments increases?
If any of the STW massive can add the usual, expected off the wall humour to this situation then please do as i could do with the lift
