My husband has cancer at base of his tongue and left side lymph  nodes  in his neck. Four weeks into treatment  radiation  5 days a week. Chemo - cisplatin  every 3rd week. 1st chemo he was down 4 days, 2nd chemo this Monday  and he is entirely  drained,no energy, feels horrible  5 days later. Why isn't he feeling human like after the first chemo? Can not stand taste of anything except water so after struggling with shakes n soft foods we are going to have to go to the feeding tube. Tried magic mouthwash  the 3 combo prescription . ..not helping,can't handle tastes, says everything  tastes like crap,the unimaginable  dog poop.how do you get enough  nutrition? Can swallow it's the tastes? Hes 57 quit smoking 17 years ago was healthy,exercised and this...hard  to handle. Any advice?
