    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): His September chemo was even higher dose than before. He did much better this time. Why? I have no idea, but the doctor said his body would adjust to the drug. He ate fair and had some loss of energy but was still able to do some work outside. The biggest problem is constipation. Need some guidance on this problem.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): After his month off he started the monthly chemo in August. It was a much higher dose than the previous chemo. He did badly. He had no energy, he could barely walk. he had no appetite, he quit eating. The less he ate, the weaker he got. I didn't know what to do anymore. The further out he got from the chemo, he started eating some , therefore things improved. But he still does not eat much. I had palliative home care started.
