Who has been on this drug and what did it do to you??? Dads liver is looking realy bad. He is in hospital now, seems something got into his blood and affected his brain, so they gave him something to help that. No mets to brain though, also lungs clear. Liver is a mess. They think we should call hospice now!!! Step mother does not want any parts of that, won't let dad accept what is happening. He has lost 10 more pounds. He is very thin. Only other option they are hesitating to offer is this taxotere. She says he's getting it. so i need to know what to expect. He has been our father our whole life, I am 32, sister is 35 and somehow he gets re-married a few years ago and she calls shots. She is having a really hard time adjusting to what is going to happen, so she thinks she can stop it. I feel like this is a rollercoaster i can't get off of. I think my father has a voice and should use it, but he is so sick and he don't want to die. Last night he cried and said he just can't say goodbye to me. I am afaid of watching him suffer further for something that is not a cure, just a drug that will prolong, and not at a comfortable pace. I can't stand to see him suffering, he does not deserve that.
