Well my father has so far had 2 rounds if chemo for metastic colon cancer . He was a stage 3 and now 4 as has liver mets and few small peritoneal nodules .
he had oxyplatin and raltitrexed . He's just not able to eat , his appetite has gone , as a result lost 5 kg in 5.5 weeks , fatigue and had chills and slight fever for 2 days but that's ok now .
also his ALP level has gone from 75 to 175 after first chemo round .
But can a person complete lose appetite ?
I thought it may be cancer progression causing him to not eat
Cea has jumped from 65 to 80 after first session . ALP level raised too after 1 round to 175 does this meN it's not working ?
That's what I think otherwise it would decrease right ?
