Foods after Radiation

Just wondering if anyone else has lost the desire or taste for certain foods after radiation or perhaps chemo?

Rad ended jan 15 and since I have had a difficult time with scrambled or fried eggs a few other foods. For a few months my appetite was greatly surpressed and I didn't have much interest in a lot of foods and certain never very much. I am doing better now, but still, not interested in eggs.

That sounds like something that would actually be good for me...I need to loose a few.

Radiation is not recomended as a diet. I find it interesting that two people can have two totally different responses to radiation. It hit me rather hard, but some guys its like they are getting their temp taken.

I found comments from others that indicated change in tastes and reduced appetite. My Rad. Onc. did not think that was a high probability, but just a couple of weeks into IGRT, I think I am seeing that. I'm know more later -

I started noticing changes in my desire or interest in certain foods even before rad was completed. Since I am a little more fussy eater then I was before. And I stil have no interest n scrambled or fried eggs. Or I eat a lot less of some foods than I used to.
