Stomach Cancer: Chemo for 80-year-old
Dear Dr. Chris K H Teo
My father who is 80 years was diagnosed with stomach cancer (stage 3). He had an operation a year ago when the entire stomach was removed. Now my father is very weak and lost his appetite.
I took my father to see the doctor today and did CT scan. It revealed that the cancer had spread to the pancreas, muscles and maybe to other places which was too small to be seen according to the doctor.
According to doctor the only alternative is go for chemotherapy. My father refuses to do chemo because he is too old and weak to have it. So, i just wonder whether you can help my father. Can I also know the estimate cost.
Early reply is very much appreciated. Thank you
