teriw Posted April 27, 2007 Share Posted April 27, 2007 I wasn't even going to post this, because I'm not sure if anyone can provide any info (it's going to sound a bit vague). Bill's just been feeling really bad for a couple weeks, apart from a couple days where he perked up. He just started on chemo again this week, so I can't blame it all on that. Although the chemo itself is making him nauseous during and just after) despite the pre-meds. He's having a hard time describing it. Sort of flu-like, but worse. Sleeping a lot. Weak and unable to eat a lot. No vomiting, but coughing up the blood this week and last (which our doctor doesn't seem to think is anything to worry about since he did the CT scan the one time we showed a lot of concern about it -- we're not so sure). Sometimes he'll perk up in the morning for a couple hours, but then feel bad again by the afternoon and not really move off the couch (treatment is in the morning each day). I'll just add that he's one of those people who has an extremely high tolerance for pain and doesn't complain about physical problems, so when he says he's sick, he's sick. I don't know if it's actually the cancer making him feel like this, or if some of it's the chemo, or something else that needs to be addressed. The symptoms aren't always the same. I feel awful because he hasn't had a "good" day where he had some energy in probably 3 weeks. We go for treatment again today, and we'll of course tell the doc how he's feeling. They've been giving him extra hydration each visit, which has helped. I guess I'm writing because I'm not sure what to be concerned about or what specifically I should be asking the doctor (or isn't that the doc's job?). Sorry if I rambled today...
