My husband just completed 4 rounds of chemotherapy(cysplatin) which was given once a week "intra-arterial" to the base of the tongue tumor site. He got a g-tube placed before the treatments. His whole digestive system seems to have shut down--not wanting to move food along at all. After much uncontrolled vomting, we then converted the g-tube to a j-tube, but still no success. He has now been put on TPN--all nutrition through an IV via a pick line.
Anyone out there experience such digestive issues?
