Hi everyone - my husband was diagnosed in June with Stage 2 and received the standard treatment of 5-FU infusion + Mytomicyn for 1st and last week and 30 radiation sessions. He completed the 2nd round of chemo 5 weeks ago. He began to feel much better over the last couple of weeks and attempted to go back to work (elementary PE teacher and coach). He's been taking it pretty easy at school, but within the last two days has gone downhill. He is very dizzy and lightheaded, some nausea and on-going diarrhea (which has existed all along). His color is not good either, very pasty. He had his labs done this week, and there were several abnormal low's and highs. I'm just curious if trying to go back in that timeframe was too soon, and if our expectations are too high as to how much he should take on at this point. The doctors just say that he should do as much as he feels like doing. I'm really interested in your thoughts. THanks so much!
