I am very thankful that I’ve been able to eat solid foods each day during this second round of chemotherapy. My appetite has been good. Today I ate a healthy 3000 calories. This has allowed me to maintain my weight, or even gain a couple of pounds. They say I will need this extra weight when I get to the radiation phase of my treatment regimen.
Thanks to Mary’s research and advice, we’ve added a new medication and I have been taking another medication prior to getting symptoms of sore throat and esophagus. All of this is based on what we learned during the first round of chemo. Hopefully, this will hold true for the next round of chemo that starts next Wednesday.
