CamperJones Posted April 18, 2003 Share Posted April 18, 2003 My Mom received her first Chemo and along with that she is getting anitbiotics and Decadron. She is now VERY lethargic and barely eats. I have offered to get her ANYTHING she but she says that all her food and drinks are now awful tasting. She used to enjoy coffee and Pepsi but now she HATES it. Before the Chemo she was alert despite everything but since this first Chemo she seems a little confused and catnaps all day long. She seems different and although she is 71 she has a memory like you wouldn't believe before the Chemo and now she is like in a permanent fog and her short term memory is clouded. I wouldn't call it depression because she will interact and talk to you but she acts sleepy all the time. She gets very aggitated with me if I try and ask the doctors questions and if I follow them outside she thinks I am keeping something from her so I am looking to you folks that have gone through this to say if I should expect this or point it out to the doctors. They don't really notice the difference as they don't know her and when they see her early in the morning they are probably just thinking she is just tired from being woke up! Thanks so much for your support and help! Hugs, Linda Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
