If you feels bleeding sometimes, its ok it may be due to hard stool which tears anal wall or sometimes loose motions may lead to anal dark red bleeding. In colon cancer bleeding do persist with frequent motions with dark clotted blood. So just don't worry and go through a regular check from a qualified piles specialist doctor.

My father was in advance stage in Stomach Cancer After taking three cycle of chemo, he was completely bed ridden. It took three month to recover him from the chemo effect. We planned for surgery In Feb. 2018, During surgery, it had found that the cancer had been spread through out the abdomen. The surgeons could not perform the surgery and closed it. The onco-surgeons suggested for chemotherapy. Again, we consulted medical oncologist, they told us it can not be given any chemo medicine. As per oncologist any type of feeding is not possible due weak clinical conditions. Now he is in home with normal saline and multivitamin. He is takings Ondem and Tranexa (through IV). Till his vomiting and bleeding is not under control. He is taking Celemin 10 plus (parental Nutrient) in every week. But, till his vomiting and black stool (like black water) is not under control. Now he is very weak. He can not move. All these salines are given to him through a home nursing. Please advise shall we continue these medicines in everyday.

Dear lybrate-user I can understand your father is suffering from advanced stage of cancer. At this time surgery or chemo is not an option. He should be given medicines for pain relief only so that this final period is pain free. If bleeding continues that small amount of radiotherapy to stop bleeding can be tried which is helpful to small percentage of people Kindly consult your doctor for that.

The prognosis of fourth stage colon cancer depends upon the type of cancer and the amount of spread. If few metastasis to liver or lung, then they can be resected after giving chemotherapy. If the metastasis are unresectable, then Chemotherapy with or without targeted therapy may be given. If peritoneal disease is present then some people recommend cytoreduction with intraperitoneal chemotherapy, which may prolong her life, but it has multiple side effects and cost is also high. I would be able to opine better if you could share the reports. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

You need to wait for the biopsy results. You will need surgery. The extend of surgery need to be discussed. However, all planning to be fine after a CT scan.

I have cancer in my intestine. and mere chemotherapy chal rahi hai, I want to know ki kya chemotherapy me hairs jate hai, please I want satisfactory answer. I am too tensed about my hairs.

Oncologist,
Dear lybrate-user ji Chemotherapy has its own effects of Alopecia. It varies from patient to patient and Chemo to Chemo. If it’s the hair you are concerned about it does grow back 3 months post therapy and darker and thicker. If for cosmetic purposes better still these days wigs are available and in customised options. Regards.
