The tumor has grow and my father currently is spending most of his time sleeping. He wakes up occassionally for his meals and for the TV news. Pain can still be feel at his chest but is still managable. I am not sure whether this new chemotherapy can help with his treatment. He also see chinese physician at Eu Yan Seng. The chinese medication helps to build his body defence system. There is no hair drop or loss of appetite due to the chemotherapy. Chinese and English treatment can be blend together for the cancer treatment process.
