    Supposedly it is, and supposedly it's normal enough. At this point he has his pump out and is mostly just tired.

      He had hot flashes throughout last night... is that bad/normal on FOLFOX? To be fair, this is the first time he's had them.

        He's getting chemo at the moment, so that's good.

          Related: He doesn't really sleep more than he used to either. In fact, he sometimes has trouble sleeping, although what that can be attributed to is a bit unclear. He spends most of his down time sitting and reading, but that's normal and he can move around and do things, although he runs out of energy fairly quickly due to age if nothing else.

            Just a thought: he's never really been bedridden, not because of this/recently, so that's probably a good thing.

              I brought up the idea of a colonoscopy to my father, he's resisting it... I'll bring it up to the doctor next time I see him, if I cn, but I don't entirely disagree with my father considering they haven't noticed anything at all.

                "Something else" basically meaning what we're aware of, OE the liver leison(s).

                  He doesn't have bloating or consitpation, or any CRC symptoms that couldn't be attributed to something else.

                    Isn't a colonoscopy a full-on surgery, though? But there haven't been any signs there's anything wrong wit h the colon; no bloody/discoloured/misshapen stools.

                      Oh, a fe thing I just remembered: They don't actually know for sure the colon is clear, but there's been no indications that there's anything there so they haven't felt a colonoscopy was needed. There's a probably non-cancer-related spot in his lung, likely from an old infection.
