So happy to hear that you are doing well. My husband Jerry went through radiation five days a week for seven weeks and chemotheraphy. He is really having a tough time with foods and was just diagnosed as being malnutritioned. He is 6\\\'6\\\" and 160 lbs. The doctor is asking him to gain 5 lbs in one week. I think that is a tall order for Jerry but he has to try. What type of foods do you recommend? I am waiting to hear back from a Nutrition Specialists. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thank you
Sorry to hear of Jerry's struggles. I lost a lot of weight going through these treatments as well. I concentrated on high fat and sugar foods after my chemo and radiation treatments, even though the chemo had made a lot of the foods taste quite unappetizing. After the surgery to remove the esophagus I couldn't tolerate sugar in any form but was still able to eat high fat - I ate a lot of cheese.
