I can't tell you if this is common or not. What I can tell you are my daughter's experiences. Sometimes she is tired and sleeps so much that I don't know how she can be that tired. Other times she has more energy than me and can go out and shop for 8 hours! There is no rhyme or reason to it. I have noticed that with the chemo she is on now is getting harder to tolerate. The Oxaliplatin is ok, but the Xeloda is really tough. She is having a lot of nausea and really red, sore feet mostly toward the end of the 2 weeks she is on it. She is still nauseous today, but the feet feel better. This is her off week since last Wed. She feels hungry, eats a bit, gets full, and then feels sick. What chemo is your husband on? I would ask his doctor about it next time you see him or her. Maybe his blood counts are low and making him tired. We will probably have to have a discussion about Lauren's chemo as well. I wish you and your husband all the best and I hope he gets some more energy and an appetite.
Hoping for a miracle for my daughter, Lauren.
