Loss of appetite
My mom has Breast cancer and began Phase 2 treatments, 1/2 chemo, 1/2 hormone for 12 weeks. Her appetite was great in Phase 1 while taking A/C but now it has changed and she has to force herself to eat. She lost 4.5 lbs in two weeks. Thank goodness, she has had no nausea or vomiting so far. Just wondering if anyone has any tips or comments?

Hey Capergirl2000‍ Sorry to hear what your mom is going through, its tough looking after a parent. I was caregiver to my dad who had Hodgkins Lymphoma and when he started Chemo he lost weight as well. I would make him a milk shake or smoothie and slip in some protein powder. He enjoyed the drink and never knew he was getting protein. He would have at least 1 a day and I really think it helped with his strength and weight loss.

Wishing you and your mom the very best.
