Starting to see some side effects

Well Marco started 4th week of radiation on Monday and has been trying to kick the cold out of his system. I let the doctor know that Marco has been having back pain. Doctor will keep an eye on this and see what happens by tomorrow, because it started to go away already.

Marco is now starting to feel some discomfort while eating spicy things so no more spicy for him. And will see if Marco will start taking his medication they prescribed soon. He has been feeling very tired after every radiation treatment, his platelets are dropping but not alarming yet so they are looking at that too.

He has lost a total of 9 pounds just in the last 2 weeks, this is not good they want him to maintain his weight if possible. So they are looking at that too. Almost done with week 4 so will see what happens and will let you know
