Follow up care after cancer is really important .he should be seeing his dr regulary . Post treatmnet ajustment is a journey and the patient and the family need to learn to live with this illness day by day even if you are in remission. Axciety and fear is normal but rather see a Dr sooner than later.
Always good to get a second oppion as well . This will assist in trusting your dr's views .Regaining body weight est is a gradual process and will need some profesional input re what your body needs. Firts sort our the physical issues then deal with the rest > Set due dates to do these things so that you have a plan of action .
