My dad has lost so much weight because he refuses to eat and take his medications as prescribed. He has probably lost 35lbs over the past few months. I have tried talking to him, encouraging him to talk to his doctor but he is a stubborn old man. He will not listen. I’ve talked until I am blue in the face about taking his medications according to the schedule but it is no use. He doesn’t feel as if they help at all. It is hard to see him like this. I don’t know what else to do. Maybe a cancer support group will help. I ‘m going to look into it tonight.
