Topic: night sweats
My husband (53 yrs/old) was diagnosed with cholangioncarcinoma at the end of May 2009. He had surgery on June 21 where they removed the tumour (along with 60% of his liver). The pathology report stated negative margins around the tumour however of the 6 lymph nodes removed 4 indicated cancerous cells. He has not had any radiation or chemotherapy, eats an amazing diet of primarily plant based foods, no sugar, no alcohol, no dairy. He exercises daily, takes many natural supplements and uses an infra red sauna 4-5 times a week.
His recovery has been very good and I would say that he seems healthier and more energetic than ever in our 30+ years of marriage.
Recently, he has had a couple of concerning symptons. After 40 min. in the sauna, he had a chill (while still in the sauna at 140 degrees). For him, this was reminiscent of the rigors he'd had pre-diagnosis. Last night he had a severe night sweat where he had to change his night clothes. He has also lost some weight in the last week. Pre cancer he was 180 pounds, went down to 130 with all the procedures pre surgery and then lost a few more pounds after the surgery. He went up to 142 pounds in Dec and is now back at 135.
We are both very concerned about the chills and sweats. Does anyone else have experience with this?
