See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
but they haven't my husband after 7 wks of chemo and radiation 5days a week is still losing weight and in a lot of pain. They said at first he might be able to eat Thanksgiving dinner....then it was Christmas....now they just can't even give us a timeline because his recovery has been soooo slow...I know things take time...but I feel like I'm watching him die...he's almost lost 50lbs (48 to be exact) and he just can't eat. He's had a feeding tube since wk 3 of treatment and thank God we did that because I think that his body would have shut down...I guess I just needed to vent because honestly there is just no one that knows what to say anymore or what we are going through. Everyone just stares at him...because they can't believe his rapid decline since treatment started. He was so healthy and awesome in September....and now 4 months later he's just wasting away...I know everyone's recovery time is different but for those of you that had chemo and radiation how long did it take before you actually were able to gain weight back? He had terrible side effects from treatments. His pain is in his mouth and throat where his cancer was so it makes it even more difficult to eat because of that.
