My father has been tube feeding since surgery in November. Initially it was horrible because he had an infection and couldn't keep any food in (diarreha). He's able to tolerate the food now but can only get 2-3 cans in each day because he feels full and starts to get bile in his throat. He's not maintaining his weight and with radiation therapy I'm afraid he doesn't have enough nutrients to stay healthy. Any ideas of what is causing him to be so full after only eating a little? He eats slowly (10 minutes on and 10 minutes off) but still gets too full to eat. Thanks for any insight you have!
