My Dad is Stage IV. Overall, he has been doing quite well. In 2010, he weighed about 190 lbs. @ dx. He has been through a lot the past couple of years, but has managed to keep his weight between 180 - 190lbs. Recently, I would say within the last 30 days or so, he has looked a little thinner... like NOTICEABLY thinner. His weight is at 180, but his face and arms look so thin. Any recommendations for maintaining muscle mass? He doesn't have a feeding tube and he is on his third postponement of chemo infusion due to low platelets. He is still eating normally. His strength and energy levels are good. He has no current restrictions. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
