Re: Dad's first week of chemo and radiation over, have questions??
Well I have stage IV nsclc and have had radiation (cyberknife) to my brain and am currently undergoing chemo.
Not quiet sure whether you mean everything smells bad to your dad, or he always has a bad smell in his nose?
Since starting chemo I seem to notice a bad smell a lot of the time, and wonder if it is from the chemo too. I'm guessing it may disrupt the noses normal ability to distinguish odors and somehow creates it's own.
Hope your dad starts to feeling better. And I have read that chemo can cause oral sores and a bitter/metallic taste, so I'm sure it can affect the nose too.
