I have another question for you experts
My husband turned around pretty quickly since the last time I posted with questions. He has gotten back almost all of his taste,the stringy thick mucus went away, he still has little to no saliva yet and throat is still pretty sore But he began eating and had gotten down to no tube feedings at all, we were very surprised and happy at the progress he was making. THEN 2 weeks ago he began feeling nauseus vomiting here and there had a headache starting skipping meals because he was not feeling well, he checked in with his PC Doc ran blood work and everything was improved white count still down but only slightly. We thought maybe he had caught a bug or something well to make a long story short He has completly lost his apetite we are back to tube feedings only, he tries to take bites here and there but he just has no desire to eat anything. I am sure this a normal setback for so early after treatment ending But I feel so bad for him he feels like he has backslid and does not understand why. Last treatment was Sept 18th first Pet Scan is next Tuesday and we recheck with entire oncology team that day also. I guess I am just looking for reassurance that this is all in the norm of healing.
