My husband was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer on his 52nd birthday in August 2005. It has metastasized to his bones and liver but not brain. I am an RN - geriatric. But this is too close to home. He is currently between the 3rd and 4th chemo treatment and this third one has really been hard on him. His weight has gone from 195 in July to 167 last week. When the elderly lose wt. we give supplements like Ensure. Does anyone know if this is good for cancer pt? Seems I read somewhere that extra protein isn't good for cancer pt.
