    I ask because before my Aunt died of Colon cancer and i noticed that her upper leg around the thigh was just bleeding non stop and it had like a little bit of a blue color. Doctors had a big rag trying to stop the blood but it just kept bleeding and i never understood what was happening. Do you think it was a tumor that bursted and started bleeding nonstop? and if someone has cancer tumors in their body will it eventually start bleeding a lot? Thanks sorry to be so graphic but it really helps to understand this disease a lot better and i appreciate it.

    Best answer: Everybody reacts differently and depending on the type of chemo and the duration of the treatment, it could leave a person very weak and feeling sick. After treatment is over it can take weeks for a person to regain their strength. Chemotherapy drugs are literally toxic and they take a toll on your body and your immune system. A person is often left with ling term side effects such as peripheral neuropathy (numbness in the extremities) and permanent hearing loss and tinitus. It's one of those things where the benefits outweigh the risks.

    So our grandfather has advanced prostate cancer that he has decided not to treat and he just has no appetite at all even one or two spoonfuls of anything gets him full. We decided to try out ensure since it's packed with high calories which will make him live and now he is down to just 1 when he started with 2 or 3. He can't even finish a whole bottle without waiting like a few hours later to try and finish the rest. Now we have tried baby food because a friend told me it would be much easier to digest for him and he only could he half of that and hasn't taken anymore of i since several hours ago. In your honest opinion do you think he is purposely starving himself to die faster? we have tried to talk him into treatment but he brushes it off. I can't understand how he can completely lose his appetite where he can't even eat just a little jar of baby food or anything thats not much at all.
