          Hey mark Hang in there buddy I just past the 3 mo mark from last treatment and fatigue and napping is thing of the past. There is a product called liquid hope, Google it, for the feeding tube that is pretty good stuff and I believe helped me heal quicker and keep weight on. I lost 3 lbs total thru it all, but keep trying to eat something everyday, scrambled eggs, oatmeal etc. your gonna make it, easy does it,,,
