I thought that maybe you all wouldnt mind hearing a little uplifting news.
My guy has all of the side effects and more I think. He started week 5 of 6 today, radiation now twice a day since last week, chemo once every week, and hydration 4 hours every day since last week until he is done with treatment on the 30th. Lips are swollen and full of puss, as is the rest of the rash on his face, head, neck, and back. Dry mouth, mucous, no energy, no taste buds, no peg tube so almost unable to swallow much, only able to down ensure when he is on pain medication, lost 25 pounds so far.
ok, so having said all of that, he went for his appt with the head honcho radiologist dr this
morning. The dr told him that it has not all been for not, that he knows its hell, but he has to finish the treatment, even though the tumor is dissolved!!! the tumor had already shrunk in his first week by a third. Now no more tumor according to the dr!!
He was very relieved even though he figured on some progress based on his first week, just glad it was as much as he was told. So its a matter of getting thru the treatment side effects as best as he can.
It can be done!!! This hell can be beat!! baby steps, and a day at a time. but it can.
know what he thinks about most??? no not me! lol!! food and hunting!!!
