Great news!

CSN is getting an upgrade. All of your posts will still be here, but the website will have a new look, new features and be mobile-friendly. To prepare for the changes, the site will be down briefly at the end November. We’ll continue to provide updates as we get closer.

There are meds specifically designed to help increase appetite. Call his oncologist or his primary care physician and put pressure on them to prescribe one of them. Also, it sounds as though he may be depressed, does he take an anti-depressant or anti-anxiety med? If not get him on one.

Taste buds went through changes with treatment but, that should be passed by now (I think). Bless you for taking on this difficult challenge.
