Hi all, my dad (72) diagnosed stage 4 nsclc (squamous) has stated chemo - carbo/gem. He had lost weight prior to dx and has lost a little more since. Just wondering if it is possible to gain weight while on chemo. He is a big guy and i don't want him to lose more weight. Should we be encouraging weight gain or wait to see if chemo is effective at all and take from there? any advice/suggestions would help.
