Linda74 Posted November 15, 2008 Share Posted November 15, 2008 My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 Adenocarcinoma in September....then came pulmonary embolisms, high sugar and a 30 pound weight loss. He did manage to walk our daughter down the aisle in October. He has completed three rounds of Alimta/Carbo Platinum. His scans showed that he was receptive to the chemo with some shrinkage particularly in the lung area. But he is depressed beyond belief. He can barely walk to the bathroom and sleeps all day and night. His appetite is poor and some pain has returned. About once every two weeks, he has a good couple of hours but returns to his fatigued state quickly. He is on all kinds of meds.......I just feel that these may be the best days he will ever have. We see doctors all the time but he is always declining. He has been on an anti depressant which is supposed to increase his appetite, but after 4 weeks, I see no benefit.....I guess I am just rambling but every day is the same or worse....We need a wheelchair to go anywhere. He is always the sickest looking person at chemo.......Last week, he received two bags of blood, but even that hasn't helped..... He is on injectable insulin, Lovenox, a phentanyl patch, and various other meds....including the Remeron......I am just so discouraged.....as is he.....
