Please can someone give me some advice as i think i’m goIng crazy,my story so far is-
Feb 2018 dad diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer, he had all treatments available to keep it at bay but it wasn’t successful.
Jan 2019 told he only had weeks to live and now under the support from St Lukes.
What i’m so confused and can’t get my head around is the constant emotional rollercoaster and changes in dad. We are a very small family i am his only relative nearby so his only carer and its really stressful. Three weeks ago he was so ill, constantly sleeping not eating, very confused we thought this is it. Then a couple of days after he’d come around and be back on his feet (although very unsready and with support), this has happened four times. Now he can’t sleep gets extremely agitated, angry, losing his memory, cannot sit still wanders and almost paces the rooms. he has also become very unsteady on his feet falling over, walking into doors, started wetting himself, and repeats himself constantly sometimes making no sense and sometimes just stops talking mid sentence. He’s even taken to following me around the house, i have to go upstairs for a break because i know he can’t follow me.
What i’m asking is has anyone else experienced such unusual behaviour, the nurse said the cancer now has probably spread to his brain. As i am a single parent with a young child we are know looking at nursing homes because i’m struggling to manage on my own.
Any advice on what to expect next and if anyone else has experienced this would be very much appreciated, thankyou.
