Hubby has just received round 2 of chemo for base of tongue cancer. With round 1, his sodium dropped so low that he was hospitalized for a week. Subsequently, his potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, and calcium dropped and he received replacments via IV while hospitalized and then daily for a week after being discharged home. Now with round 2 we are struggling to keep those electrolye levels up. Anyone have this experience? Any ideas on how to prevent this?
