My husband.Non Smoker -non dranker
Dx Jan 2009 T4 N1 mo Larynx cancer squamous Cell Cancer.
Treatment Cisplatin Chemo and radation 7 weeks March to May 2009. face got a little red He lost a little over 50 pounds When I read about chemo and radation treatments and how people lost so much weight I worried . He was not so skinny guy and had the extra weight , And I tried to make sure he eat good while he could.
He has dry mouth still . He carries water with him .
May 2009 till May 2010
By May 2010 It spread to his Lungs. Metastic to Lungs
Treatment second time around Carbosplatin,other drugs I am not even sure of b-12 styriods.
He is sick about a week after the treatment, heart burn . He coughs more . He had to take water with him for his dry mouth.
He still eats very good . He still watchs his beloved Lions football. He lost the taste for sugary foods. His weight has stayed about the same give or take a few pounds.
after his second round of Chemo they did a Ct scan It showed the four tumors two on each lung had shrink 30-40 % and one tumor completly gone. Now finished in his fourth Chemo this week. Sept 9 he will have another C.T.Scan.
I don't know if this is "Normal" or We just over excited . The Doctors seam to think this is very good
I am just so worried I am missing something, or someone is just going to say give up now.
I can't spend all my time doing the poor me thing. But I can't stop crying, cause I don't have the answers. cancer sucks, and while it does this to the person who has it , it sucks the life out of the ones who love them
