Hi you Beautiful people,
As some of you know my father has advance liver cancer with Metastastic spine cancer.
Oncologist put him on Sorafenib, but since he started the pills everything changes. he got blood on his MOCUS mostly in the morning, and he got dirreaha, he sleeps most of the time, he talks nonsense (doesn't make any sense) he can't sleep at night, he doesn't call me any more (he use to call me almost every hour) and he can not control his bowl movment. Beside all that i think he got EDEMA,his legs are so big and hug, but miraculously when he lay down for some hours the swollowing goes away!!!! he got joundice too. sad
Does any body what does that mean? THis is becaus of Sorafenib or the end is near.
Please any respond is appriciated. I am so helpless and don't know what to do.

Have you talked with his doctor and told them about the symptoms your father is experiencing? He may be having a reaction to his medication or many things. I am so sorry that things have taken a downward turn for your dad. Keep us updated.

Shiva, I agree with Lucy.  You need to talk to your dad's doctor and tell him that he seems to have gotten a lot worse since being on that med.
