      Let him sleep. I went thru colon cancer when I was 33 and the chemo knocked me out every time. My wife let me sleep and it did me a lot of good.

      My first outing after the drugs and the radiation was a month after and a 1/2 day's stroll through Art Basel exhausted me. Later that week we went out for supper but I still felt like a ghost. There were a lot of half hour excursion thereafter but it took about SIX MONTHS until I was strong enough to actually contemplate getting stronger ... go to the gym to begin to recover my strength.

      try to make him move around as much as he can. if he get tired then he should sit down for a few then get back up. I would also try to force him to walk a little bit everyday because he will be building up his body.....it is hard. Is he older?

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Bruce has oral chemo and then IV every two weeks for twelve sessions. He has had 3 IV sessions. His fatigue level is getting more difficult.

    Oh No (Cancer has spread/Metastasized): At first they thought was in the lymph nodes but later said it was outside the colon. But the good part is the PET scan did not show anymore cancer.
