My husband Donnie went for his checkup (He finished all the chemo/radiation 2/27) and the doctor was so pleased with him. No bad side effects and getting ready to do physical therapy on his stomach soon. He has the G-tube but rarely used it. His throat was very sore but to swallow it hurt but he kept on. The week after all the treatment were finished, that was a hard week cause his throat was too sore to swallow anything even water. He would do the shakes and put them through the tube. He never got down sick and didn't lose any hair on his head only facial hair. The man gained 16 pounds but since the treatments finished, he lose 15. He has a good appetite all the time. His voice is coming back. I thank God daily for all His goodness and mercy.
