My husband is 47 years old and was diagnosed February 5th, 2010 with stage IVa cancer. He has completed 33 rad treatments and 3 doses of cysplatin. His doctor is scheduling him for at least 2 more doses of cysplatin with 5FU. His worst time was 2 weeks after treatment, he had nausea and vomiting. Thank God for the chemo doctor insisting that his peg tube be placed before treatment started. He has lost 30 pounds so far. If anyone out there has any advice for him getting his taste buds back and start to eat again.
I have been reading the discussion boards for a while now and have found alot of good and helpful advice.
I just want to say that I admire each and everyone of you for your courage and I pray everyday for a cure.
Living in hope.
