My husband has had RCC since November 2011. On January 13, 2012 he had his right kidney removed and the IVC repaired as it had traveled up the IVC and was touching the heart. 7 weeks later they found it had moved into the lungs and was put on Sutent. July of 2013 the right lung was clear and the left lung had shrunk about 50%. January this year we found he how has two on the brain and had gotton one cybernife session completed but before he could go for the second session he has now had a diverticuli rupture and a colostomy places. In 24 days he endured 4 surgeries relating to the first surgery. The first emergency surgery was on February 5th, then on February 15 while in the ER the the incision ruptured sompletely with his intestines on the outside--emergency surgery #2, February 25 due to the infection they did a debris clean on the incision and Mar 3 they had to go back and do a stoma repair.....since these surgeries they past week or so and now being home he can no longer eat. He says when he sees the food or tastes it he wants to throw up...needless to say he is weak and can get no strength to be able to get up and out of bed and I at my wits end knowing what to do or what to expect. Have any of you ran across any helpful ideas as to how to get them to eat and some strength built up or is his body starting to shut down.....any comments would be appreciated I also wanted to mention that he is sleeping most of the time also...can't seem to stay awake....
