My brother had the transplant in June. He's 61, single. He had Mantle cell lymphoma. It's now November and he's on the phone crying that he has no energy to make food for himself. He's very depressed and lonely. I see him once a week or more and talk to him 3-4 times a day. He feels better after but he returns to a profoundly negative bend. I know the loss of energy is part of the chemo as is the emotional aspect. He sees no ight at the end of the tunnel. takes no suggestions of what to eat. He told me this morning he feels like doing nothing. And he's crying. I told him to do what he can do. Easy for me to say. I feel lousy about it; can't do more for him.
