    Side Effects (Eating problems (anorexia)): he was never a very big man to start with, before he was diagnosed with cancer he had always weighed about 145 lbs ( well before he had legionnairs that is what he weighed) now he is lucky if he breaks 100lbs and that is on a good week. He has no appetite and the doctors have tried all the appetite increasing meds, finally found one that works for him. But at times I think his depression takes over his appetite.

    Side Effects (Cough): he has a terrible cough that is so difficult to deal with, this has to be the worst part of it all. He is very thin and this cough is causing him alot of pain in his chest and across his shoulders
