Thank you!! Wow. I really appreciate all of the information that you shared. I will definitely spend some time reviewing it and will share it with my boyfriend as well. He is not on an enzyme at this point. The oncologist has not mentioned it and he does not have a gastroenterologist either. Like I said, right now, we're working with a one-man show. The oncologist has never really mentioned surgery; we are talking with Johns Hopkins who got all of his initial scans and will get his first scan since starting chemo (we're getting that scan a little later today). We would ultimately go to either JH or University of Pittsburgh Medical Center for surgery once he is identified as a candidate for surgery. He wants to eat but as I suggested, because of the increase in thick saliva and the increase in mucus that often ends up draining to his stomach, he often doesn't have the appetite. If we could figure out how to get those dried up, he might be up for more food. Again, thank you for sharing all of the information.
