Hi cindy, so happy to hear you are cancer free! My mom, age 64, was diagnosed on Friday with EC, they are not sure if it is stage 2 or 3 yet as they are waiting for results of her pet scan, which she is scheduled for on this Saturday. She is starting radiation and chemo early next week. I am scared and clueless as I have no idea what to expect. I am reaching out because my mom cannot eat hardly anything and it breaks my heart. She basically chokes on anything - she has been eating cheesecake, ice cream and eggs. And shakes. I was wondering if you had any ideas suggestions on foods or shakes ? Not sure if you will but thought I would ask. Thank you for sharing your success story and I hope my mom can share one day too! Also, any feedback for what I can do for her post radiation/chemo treatments? Expectations ? Thanks again! read more.
