Esther, it’s difficult to say without examining him first. It might be due to the chemotherapy or due to the fact that the cancer has spread to the brain. The cancer might also be producing substances that affect the brain or it might be due to pain medication he is taking. The best would be to ask his doctor and find out for sure. Good luck.
