Daz finished his treatment 5 weeks ago and is still suffering fatigue so bad he can't hardly move, he sleeps most of the day and all night, is so grumpy and has quit smoking because he can't get up to go outside to smoke. Thank god for for that, properly the only good thing that has come from this. He has started a new drug trial and will get the first treatment in a few weeks after all the tests they need for him to start. The trial is to find the affects of Nivolumba on brain metastasis, it has proven to work well on the lungs so should help his spots on his lungs as well as his brain and dosn't have many side affects so hopefully will not give him much trouble. I hope the positive out weigh the negitive this time.

Hi Gee Gee So sorry to hear that Daz is still having problems with fatigue. I can very much relate as Erik (my hubby) is 1 week and 2 days into his six weeks of Radio and is exhausted and getting quite fed up with being so damn tired all the time !!! From what I understand this is just the beginning for him !! I hope Daz improves soon - is he eating ok or does he have no appetite? Sorry if I'm asking dumb questions I'm so new to this I have a million and one questions at times... I hope the positive outweighs the negatives for you also. Its such a guessing game this damn cancer journey for all of us in so many different ways.... Take care.. Jodii

Hi Jodii, thanks for your reply. Yes Darryn is having a lot of trouble eating, he has no appetite and also even the thought and smell of food has him gaging and feeling sick. Don't worry about asking dumb questions, thats what we all come here for, to help people and get advice for ourselves. It's such a great help having a place like this to ask questions and rant when we need it. I wish you and Erik the very best and hope you are coping ok. Feel free to ask me anything, I am here for you anytime. Daz is starting a new drug trial so we are hoping this gives us more time together and not to many side effects. Geraldine. 🙂
