flabet Posted October 7, 2003 Share Posted October 7, 2003 I'm really scared tonight. Doug has been getting weaker and weaker for the past week. Thank God, we're seeing the oncologist tomorrow for his regular chemo session. He was feeling great a week ago, but now he is so weak he just wants to sleep all the time. His appetite is nothing and it's all I can do to get him to eat. He is complaining of pain in his stomach and has diarreah. I knw he has had a staph infection, but he won't take his latest antibiotic, Clindamycin, because he believes that this is what is causing his stomach problems. He only took 4 tablets, the last 1 week ago and hasn't taken any since, but since he was feeling pretty good before the took it, he believes this caused all his problems. I'm afraid it isn't the meds, but maybe his cancer has come back stronger. I know I'm just reaching out tonight, and hopefully tomorrow the Onc will be able to allay some of my fears, but right now I just feel so scared. Anyone out there, please help!!
