Problem is my father is having chemotherapy . He's had so far 2 sessions of oxyplatin . had has colon cancer . Was a stage 3 but now stage 4.
He just does not want to eat and as a result lost 5.5 kg in 6 weeks .
normal in chemo not wanting to eat at all ?
Also his ALP level
is now 225 from 175 after first round of chemo . Could this be causing appetite loss ? And why such a big jump ?
So chemo damages the liver ?
He's on oxyplatin and raltitrexed .the other issue is cea was 65 just beofre start of chemo amd after round 1 it jumped to 80. Does this indicate disease progression plus
the high ALP
