So, my husband is on a new chemo, it makes him very sick. He throws up while he is at home on his pump and for a few days after he is off, then the diareah starts. He doesn't feel like eating but he forces himself, then he either throws it up or he has diareah and loses it all that way. And i know this is going to sound stupid, but he has steadily been losing weight - he is not worried but i am. His blood tests are all good, and his CEA is even going down. He is scheduled for a CT Scan after his next chemo treatment.
So, here is the stupid question - should i be worried that he is losing weight? Do you think it's because of the throwing up & diareah? The last time he lost weight like this, he was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer, but now he still has the cancer - so like i said to him, last time you lost weight like this you were diagnosed, now you are already sick - so i don't know if i should be worried or not. He told me he is not worried.
i just need some reassurance here.
Thanks for listening to me ramble on.
