My husband completed radiation treatments for prostate cancer on March 9. He has no appetite or taste and is eating less than 700 calories/day, if that much. He is 6'3" and has already lost over 10 pounds since Feb 18th and last weighed 165 pounds. He is drinking Boost, but can't seem to eat solid food. Nothing appeals to him. I don't know what to do. I told him I wanted to take him to the emergency room to get an IV drip, but he doesn't want to go. I can't keep nagging him constantly to eat something and drink water (he contracted a urinary tract infection the other day and I think it is because he is not drinking fluids either-after the radiation treatments he just slept most of the time) I don't know what to do and would appreciated any advice.
