      Since chemo started (TCH) I have to force myself to eat. Mouth sores -I see SueRae1 mentioned the mouthwash. I have one that numbs. My stomach hurts and I am not in the slightest bit hungry. I am honestly forcing down food to make my family happy. I only weigh 100 lbs (not quite 5ft tall) so I can only lose so much weight. I hope you are able to eat and drink even little bits

      My husband had the same treatment as you describe, but luckily he did not have any problems with eating, so I can't offer you any suggestions. But if you have any questions during your journey, please throw them out there and I will try to help!
