Nobody can nor has any right to judge or determine what is right for another. It's only self-centric and righteousness that leads one to assume for another.
Absolutely, but keep in the back of your mind that sometimes, the chemo can make you a little loopy. My Mom was even weirder than normal during her chemo season, a little more paranoid and MUCH more concerned with how others looked at her. Also, there is a time to say "dumbass! you are getting over the cancer; you can and need to accept help." (be prepared to duck) I maintain that driving yourself 30 minutes down the highway and through traffic to and from your chemo treatment is just a bit too stubborn.

She had it in 1995, no reoccurences or anything; she is as normal as she ever was.

My mother is going through the same thing. She had chemotherapy first to shrink the tumor then the operation to remove the affected section of her colon. She has a colostomy bag now and just finished another round of chemo. We are still waiting for an appointment to have the colon reconstruction. She lost some of her hair and most of her strength but none of her mind. I really think you have nothing to fear. Keep in touch.

Although all cases are different,
I have a member of my extended family
who was diagnosed with colon cancer
over 25 years ago. He had a large section
of his colon removed, gets regular
treatments and checkups, and is
still with us, going strong.

No disrespect, and certainly not to make
light of your particular situation, but in many
cases nowadays, the big C is no longer the
horrific death knell which it once was in years
past.

Best wishes for a positive outcome for you.
You are in our prayers.

My father has never had "suicidal" tendencies but I am worried with the multiple guns we have in the house one day he will give up hope and do something irreversible. What should I do?
Keep the firearms locked and keep communication with him.

I think one of the most important things you can do right now is to trust him.
