My husband had 3 rounds of R-CHOP then a 6 week break, then 20 radiation treatments for Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma, left tonsil. His last radiation treatment was about 6 weeks ago. Between the chemo and radiation, he had a PET scan that showed no sign of cancer.
He was feeling pretty good until last week. He always tells me he feels fine, but I could tell he wasn't himself. He finally admitted today that he's concerned about a relapse. He said he has no energy and his legs feel weak and heavy. He also said he feels a little jittery at times and his joints are achy.
Radiation took a toll on him. He lost 26 pounds in a month. He still isn't eating like he used to. His weight is stable, but he's not gaining it back. I think he's feeling overwhelmed about the amount of yard work and house maintenance to be done during the summer months. I need to help more, for sure. I just thought he was doing OK until the last few days.
He has a check up and labwork scheduled for August 6 ( no scans ). I feel like its too soon to have relapse symptoms. Do you think it could related to treatment?
