Haven't posted anything lately, but keeping all those in need in my prayers. Just have a quick question. Jack is 3 1/2 months post op, and doing quite well, but he's been put on post op Xeloda...2 weeks on and 1 week off. He's now in his second cycle, and other than fatigue seems to be tolerating it fairly well. His dosage has been reduced and he's taking a few meds to help his appetite. He's eating quite a bit, I think, but continues to lose weight...and I'm getting frantic. He walks a mile a day and is returning to his normal activities little by little, so he's feeling pretty good. Anyone out there had these issues with post op chemo? Frankly, he didn't lose much weight in the pre-op treatment so I'm wondering why now. I recently got him some Whey Protein powder which we add to a hefty milk shake once daily.
