Does anyone else have problems eating certain foods after chemo like cheese, diary, breads?
I take Prevacid to reduce the acid but still have problems eating.

Since my esophagogastrectomy followed by chemo and radiation, I have had trouble with milk and ice cream, raw vegies and really rich foods. I take Protonix for acid and Reglan to help with digestion. It is much better now than at first. For a while I couldn't tolerate any dairy at all. Now sometimes, I do okay with small portions. Hoping your digestion improves with time.

You may also try a Dietary Digestive Aid by Solgar. We don't have the necessary enzymes to breakdown foods, so this helps.
