      It has been just under 3 weeks that he had radiation. No one said anything to us about necrosis. He has not had a fever. Just a voracious appetite - which I contribute to the steroid. But he has been off the steroid for 3 days now, and is still eating everything in sight, and seems to be sleeping more the last 3 days.

      I agree with BoiseB,
      Maybe you're PCP will see something besides cancer. It seems no matter what I have wrong with me, my oncologist ( and I am on my 3rd one ) has very limited ability to help me. I am going to my PCP tomorrow. I have been home from the hospital from the flu for several weeks, and don't seem to be bouncing back.

      Great answers glad everyone here was able to jump in and help you out. I know i sleep more and more after each chemo session.. lately i have been napping 2-3 times a day and then in bed 9-9:30 .. think it just wears you out. Hope he starts to get a little more energy soon.

    Decision Point (Local doctor said whole brain radiation): we had to become our own advocate and search out what the best treatment was - decided NOT to do whole brain - but stereotactic radiation

    Radiation (External radiation ): My husband has slept so much since radiation - I am not sure if it is the radiation or if he is depressed.
