    Father with cancer and unusual behavior, CT scan and bloodwork shows nothing

    My dad has pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer and was getting more confused. Night before last in the middle of the night, he wandered out of the house and went around the neighborhood, confused. He was taken to the hospital and a CT scan and bloodwork shows nothing that could've caused this behavior. Why isn't anything showing up in the tests or his CT scan?

    Unfortunately not everything is easily determined by bloodwork or imaging. Was he tested for a UTI or is he dehydrated?

    Not quite sure about the UTI but I think the test was negative. Definitely not dehydrated because he's been drinking lots of water!

    Dear liz,

    I am so sorry to say, but cancer of the endocrine system means that his metabolism, sexuality, sleep, mood, and everything about him will be or is being negatively affected. In other words his body, mind and and emotions have gone berzerk. I think there is no cure.


    Hugs,
