Wife2jeff, one thing that hasn't been mentioned yet is how long it may
take your husband to get back to normal energy levels.
I finished chemo in August 2018 and it wasn't until April or May this year that I felt normal again. That may be partly due to diet as I had no desire to eat much until Feb or March.
My chemo brain was never really severe, but I do still have some lapses in memory.
Neuropathy in my fingers is down to constant mild tingling and my ability to do up buttons, etc. has returned, but my feet and legs issue is a different story. I still have numbness half way up to my knees and the wet sand feeling is still there. I will have to see if it gets worse now that the cold weather is returning.
One weird thing is that even though it is a year after having my PICC line removed, it still feels as if it is there. Can't explain it...
All the best for your husband's remaining treatments.
