John is now finished with his chemo and radiation treatments. He finished up with chemo on 9/25 and radiation on 9/28. He did pretty good through his 5 weeks of treatment but now it seems like he is being hit with fatigue and diarrhea. He was infused with fluids on the 25th, the 28th and again on the 30th. He is now taking lomotil every 6 hours to control the diarrhea so that he does not lose the fluids he is intaking. He has little to no appetite or energy. He is sleeping about 12 hours a night and takes a nap during the day.
