    Chemotherapy and radiation combined

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I am the caregiver for my husband. He has completed 20 radiation treatments and in the middle of Chemo at this time. Very concerned about his inability to bounce back from his Chemo. Symptoms of lack of appetite, and esp. the tiredness(he sleeps away most of his days) seem to linger til just before his next Chemo treatment (they are every 3 weeks. Is this normal?

    Easy to Do: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree

    Fatigue (tiredness)

    Side Effects

    Although he has other symptoms like lack of appetite, low blood counts, trouble with either constipation or Diahrrea, his fatigue has me most concerned. Seems he sleep away the days, not doing any better for weeks after his Chemo treatments. Is this normal?
