My husband Neil has been recovering pretty well from Tonsil Cancer and apart from the symptoms you all know only too well (difficulty eating, dry mouth etc) the thing that has really been troubling him most is fatigue. He is back at work and is fortunate enough to be able to work from home 3 days a week but by mid afternoon he is whacked out. Since he was first daignosed (Aug 06)his progress has been as you would expect - slow but thankfully sure - until the last few weeks when his energy levels have dipped again. At our most recent visit to see his consultant blood tests were done and he has been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. He has been prescribed Metformin and has just started taking it. I just wondered if anyone else has been similarly diagnosed and whether this could be as a result of his treatment (Surgery, Radiotherapy & Chemo). I'm really hoping that this is a very positive thing to have happened and that the medication will soon have him feeling a little more energetic.
Love to everyone
