My father had his Gallbadder out 7 months ago, the doctor found spots on his liver, and wanted to run more test. my mother and dad went to have his follow up and told dad he needed a colon test, i know the doctor told him they thought they found cancer but i really don't think he understood everything the doctor was saying. (my dad is very stubburn when it comes to doctors.) after all this time with asking mom why dad looks so bad (all this time she said he just wasn't hungry and is tried and its his sugar) after yelling and doing alot of crying- my mom told us 7 months ago the doctor (only told mom) dad has 5 spots on his liver, several spots on his lungs and colon cancer- stage 4. my mom has decided not to tell him. (or use kids) im soooo upset, why would she do that? what if 7 months ago he could have had treatment? Isn't it wrong for a Doctor to tell the wife and not my father? Now im going home tomorrow and she said if i start crying or acting different i shouldnt come. OH MY GOD. she said if me or my sister tell him, she will disown us, and leave without telling anyone where she is going. someone tell me what and how i should feel?View Thread
