It has been 6 months now since I have had surgery - chemo - external & internal radiation therapy, and my energy is returning, my strength and muscles growing, basically had and am having very few ’side effects’ at this point with the exception of my stomach. I am down to one small solid meal a day, since it is far more comfortable and less painful for me to digest a liquid meal.
Since radiation I have not experienced hunger pains as I did before, it feels now like a hunger burn. I have discussed this with my both my regular Oncologist and my Radiation Oncologist and all they have been able to do for me is to prescribe that I take a daily anti-acid which make no difference at all. It is not the food that I am eating causing this burn. . . It seems to be the food that I am not eating. If and when I eat solids the burning is exchanged for an intense pain. It is either one or the other. Does anyone, or has anyone dealt with this issue.
