Can a stroke patient be treated for cancer?

Question by Clari099: Can a stroke patient be treated for cancer?
My father has a massive stroke 9 months ago as a result of A-fib. He is currently on a fib medicine as well as blood thinners. He has never regained use of his left side because of the damage done to his brain( was a brain clot stroke) last week we got more heartbreaking news that he has cancerous masses in his nose, chest, neck, and kidneys. Can he take chemotherapy? We have an appointment this next week but I would love some help with this question.

    Depending on his age and health he can more than likely have surgery and/chemo and/or radiation treatments. Having an ischemic stroke does not make you slobbering, booger eating simpleton… Why is he not in continued physical therapy? It’s completely possible, with intense therapy, most functioning comes back to a large degree.

    All of your concerns will be addressed by his doctors. I know it is very hard seeing a loved one this way…I have been there and My Son is now going though it with me because I have Leukemia.
    Ask as many questions as you need to so you understand. Good Luck and God Bless.
