do you believe in prayer...if so, I suggest praying that your dad would release his angry and cry out to a true and living God...Jesus died on the cross for our healing...God can heal cancer...God is bigger than cancer...but you must believe he can do it!

Sorry about your Dad. Anger is a tool of our emotions. He needs to deal with his situation and at this point that is how he is handling it. The anger will probably turn to depression, so be watchful of that. I wanted to run, and run, and run until I got away from IT. But, there is no running...we will be praying that he will stand and fight. I was 58. 59 is still too young and he has lots of years ahead. Be sure he gets the best doctoring you can find. There is always hope. You have all of us here who care. God bless and best wishes as your dad fights this awful disease.

Thank you for your encouraging words. He is starting radiation for 10 days to try and shrink tumor. Then will start chemo to try and fight the liver and lung.

My husband is also 55 and was diagnosed stage 4 in October 2011 and was a complete shock. He has had chemo treatments 8 rounds and on Monday he is having surgery. He has done wonderful thru his chemo treatments, only side effect has been tiredness. No radiation. How are you doing after the surgery? My husband has an attitude like you do and is very positive about everything, and we are confident in our doctors. At this point the doctors have said he is no longer in the textbooks anymore. After surgery we will deal with everything, but expect to have more chemo and possible radiation after. I am very worried about this surgery. Hang in there and keep up the fight.

Did you or your loved one seek a second opinion before starting cancer treatment?
No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
