Colon Cancer with Multple Myloma
WorriedDaughter1214 posted:
My father, 78 y/o has recently been diagnosed with Colon Cancer following a recent routine Colonoscopy. Initially we were told he had one Polop 1.5 inches accross that was highly suspicious, then we were told there was two, and just recently when the biopsy confirmed it was cancerous we were told there are multiple cancerous polops. He has referred to a surgeon which he will see tomorrow. My biggist concern is he also has Multiple Myloma which he was preparing to start Chemo for when all this come up, his most recent hemogoblin was 10.9 and for that reason his Hemotologist wanted to start treatment for the Multiple Myloma. This really concerns me, that they are talking surgery on a 78 y/o man with an already compromised immune system. No one has given him a stage of his Colon Cancer, any advise on this matter would be greatly appreciated. He is gun-ho for the surgery, thinking he is going to cured immediately, he says if the doctor says it has to go then they are the experts and that they do this all the time. I am scared that his quality of life will go down the tubes, at present he says he feels like a million bucks and is asymtomatic.
