[MOL] side effects of colon cancer treatment and alcohol

Does anyone know the side effects of colon treatment chemo?
My dad is going on his fourth month of chemo treatment for colon
cancer.  He was told he would not have hair loss and probably no
nausia.  He has lost a lot of hair and does have nausia, skin problems -
feet, and diarhea.  So he wasn't expecting these side effects to happen
and now they have.  So he feels confused with what the side effects
should be.  Secondly, he has been drinking hard liquor drinks on his 3rd
and 4th week.  (he has 1 week chemo and 3 weeks off).  Is it ok to be
drinking alcohol and how much is ok? Does it matter if it's hard liquor
or wine?

Thank you
