My husband’s last chemo (cisplatin) and radiation treatments were on 12/26/19. He still has no appetite or hunger. When does this usually return?

No appetite is something most OC patients struggle with during the beginning of their recovery. This is a perfect example of the "everybodys different" situations. For some, its months while others only deal with no appetite for a few weeks.

I suggest mentioning this to his doc on the next appointment or if his next appointment isnt for a while, try calling the nurses to see if they have any suggestions. Ask his team if theres a nutritionist at the treatment facility he could work with. Nutritionists have all kinds of ideas and suggestions that might be helpful.

Best wishes with your husbands continued recovery!!!
