loretta Posted March 2, 2007 Share Posted March 2, 2007 My husband sclc mets to brain and liver has had thrush for about 1 1/2 month. We have done nystatin over and over, The doctor gave us a prescription for diflucan and it cleared it up, it is back now with a vengence, He is miserable to the point he has quit eating, he says it feels like he can't swallow, are there any other maybe home remedies or anything else to try?? It seems atleast right now the cancer is atleast responding to treatment but he is so miserable with side effects of things he needs to help him that it is really getting him down, He has been breaking down and crying alot, he's very weak from the decadron messing with his legs, we found his blood sugar to be 490 last week at out appt. we now have to test for that, he was dehydrated because of the high blood sugar, I'm sure all of you know it just seems hard to just catch a break, I'm going to talk to the doctor tomorrow about anti-depressants I really think he needs them. anyone have good results with one kind over another?? His stomach is really bloated, and bothers him alot, We have been to the doc two seperate times for that, and he sent us for an x-ray which showed constipation. that problem has cleared up but his stomach is looking pregnant. has anyone had experience with this or any suggestions?? Wow, I guess I had more to pour out than I thought, I am so frustrated and I know you all can relate, I can only imagine the frustration my husband feels, Thanks for listening again and for any suggestions Loretta Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
