He is on enzymes now. Not sure of the brand but I know he has tried at least 5 different kinds. Currently he isn't on any chemo or radiation. He just finished a 2 month round of radiation at the end of Oct. PET scan came back with some activity but doctors aren't sure if it is from the radiation or cancer. He was also just diagnosed as diabetic. I believe he was prescribed marinol but he hasn't taken it yet. Thank you so much for your response and suggestions! I will pass them along and hopefully we can get him to put some weight back on!
