For those who've had surgery---it seems that tomatoes are supposed to be avoided because of the acid. My dad's favorite foods were always tomato based pasta dishes like spaghetti, lasagna, goulash, etc. If he can't have these, has any one found a substitute they liked? I have heard of Nomato---but don't know if it is any good.
He has his second swallow test 12/30--pray it goes well. His surgery was 12/7 at Duke and has been on a feeding tube since, but has been home. He tries to walk 2 miles/ day and is doing OK. HE still i on pain meds. How long does that last last?
He also gets tired very easy like he did after chemo---will this and chemo brain type symptoms go away? ????
thanks to all of you, my CSN friends--without you I would have been a "basket-case"!
