Extreme loss of appetite since starting chemo for pancreatic cancer
My husband had Whipple surgery Feb 2, 2023 for a Stage 1B pancreatic tumor. He is receiving the Folfirinox chemo regimen. The 1st round was horrible. They decreased certain amounts for the 2nd and 3rd treatments. Since starting Chemo he has lost 17lbs not including the 10lbs he lost after the Whipple surgery. The Chemo has taken away any desire to eat. We have been given various medications to stimulate appetite and none are really working. He is scheduled for his 4th round June 1st. Has anyone dealt with this same struggle? He can’t keep losing and would appreciate any feedback on this.
