Re: mesothelioma and sweats #2

Hi Butterfly,
Thank you so much for your reply. I'm looking for all the information that I can get. My father took his 5th chemo treatment this week. He is doing fairly well except when he has the sweats and they really get him. They leave him exhausted, weak, unable to eat, etc. - just "drain" him of all energy. He was just diagnosed the last week of October and the sweats started just after that, so this is still relatively new to us. We are just looking for ways to keep him more comfortable when they start up. He can tell when they are coming on.

Thanks again,
Madison
