No foul odor at our house. Just fatigue, constipation and nausea

He has really bad breath and he didn't have it before the temodar so I was wondering if it had something to do with the medicine killing the cells

I have three sons, so it's hard to tell the source.

Thush is likely, I got it at the beginning. People on Chemo & steroids are more susceptible to fungal infections. I was prescribed Nystatin. Took about a week, but it did the job.

YES!!! I have noticed that it goes away a couple of days after he finishes his five days. Something like a sweet metallic smell...

I haven't seem any symptoms of thrush. It does go away during the 7 days off though, that's why I thought it may be the chemo.
