My dad is Stage 4 colon cancer mets to the liver. A secondary throat cancer and stage 4 COPD but yet insists he has no pain anywhere. He weighs 95 lbs, smokes all day, cannot stand without falling. Hospice has been called in. No pain?? Seriously?

Hi,

     Really feel bad about your father. But most of the people who suffer from colon cancer can feel extreme pain in the abdomen and bowel problem. Consult with specialist and take proper treatment. I will pray for your father, and please fet well soon.

Thanks,

Hi,

    I am so sorry for your father, with such a illness still smoking? I don't understand. My husband has stage iv colon cancer also with mets to the liver, he has no pain at all. he losts 60 lbs and gain 18 back, he is in good shape. I am monitoring everything he eats, and he talks 20 minutes of walk morning and night, so far it's been good. he has 2/3 of his colon resectioned 1/2 year ago. we are focus on his liver right now, currently not operatable. but I am very positive. doctors said he only has 1/2 year to live, he is way passed that time. there is definately hope. but your dad needs to cut out all his back habbits. how old is your dad? he needs to have hope to live. good luck.

Bao

Yes he is still smoking. We are at end stage according to hospice. I am afraid there is no hope. But we were not given any from the start. He was on palliative care from day one. He was given a year last April with chemo. We stopped all chemo in August 2012. He cannot walk so exercise is out of the question. He also drinls only alcohol and a little coffee.  I cannot take any of his vices away. That is all he has left. Sadly my dad is only 72.

It's a very sad situation, but I definitely agree with you; let him eat and drink and smoke what he wants and as much as he wants. If he's not complaining of pain, perhaps he truly doesn't have any. That's a blessing at least. I wish you both the best.
