The end of 12 cycles of Folfirinox
Hi everyone, my 1st Post here. My husband is 48, has stage 4 Inoperable bowel cancer with BRAF. He’s on day 7 of his 12th and potentially final cycle of folfirinox before a scan to see if he’s operable now. Oxaliplatin was withdrawn for the last round) otherwise he had each cycle on time & 100% dose. He stopped work for Xmas 22nd Dec & was due back tomorrow but I’m making him stay off until next week and we (I) ? will review it.
Anyhooooo the fatigue has hit him like a train. He’s sleeping like a koala and I basically shove food in front of him a couple of times a day and that’s that. Obviously I’m letting him sleep or just rest on the sofa (he gets up and dressed every day), but he’s so weak he can barley walk, lost 7kg on the last two cycles and has the most hideous halitosis the last few days. Stoma is behaving as it should but he’s lost his appetite and can only eat half of his usual meal size. Anything else I can do to help him or just make sure he’s hydrated and eating healthy food?
