I am 4 months post chemotherapy and radiation. I had my PEG removed about two months ago, after having it for about four months. Almost immediately after my PEG was installed, I had no sense of being hungry or being full, but maintained my intake of Carnation and water. To this date, I have no feelings of hunger or fullness. I was one of the lucky ones who, after 28 radiations and later, Brachytherapy, did not lose my taste buds. I eat at meal times and something in my head tells me when to stop eating. I was 275 prior to treatment, dropped 55 lbs, and keep an almost constant weight of 220. My ENT, Oncologist, and RO, all say my situation if more than likely caused by the radiation. Hve any other "PEG feeders" experienced this situation???
