What is my.Macmillan?
Methotrexate chemotherapy side effects. Cns lymphoma, large diffuse B cell tumour on the brain. Is confusion, restlessness and aggression post chemo normal?.
Welcome to the site no one wants to join. I'm sorry you need to be here, but for help and support from people who understand what you are going through there is no better place.
You can find information about methotrexate on the Macmillan site here:
I have looked through the usual side effects and there is no mention of your Dad's symptoms, but if he has a mass on his brain I believe that could cause the symptoms. It does sound as though your Dad is in the best place whilst he is being treated; hospitals don't like keeping people in any longer than necessary.
You can get professional advice from the nurses on the Macmillan helpline; they are very experienced and very patient. The number is:
0808 808 0000 open Mon - Fri from 9am to 8pm.
You might find it useful to also join the group "Carers only" where you will get advice and support from other carers.
I hope your father responds well to the chemo and that you soon see again the Dad that you know and love.
If you have any questions about our organisation our Macmillan team would love to hear from you
You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr or YouTube.
