My boyfriend has been diagnosed with head and neck cancer. Is in week 3 of chemo and radiation. He has a PEG tube but refuses to use it and I can not get him to use the ENSURE drinks or even Instant breakfast shakes. He now has fungus in mouth and is very sore. He gets rads Mon-Fri and Chemo every Mon for a total of 7 weeks. His chemo is Cisplatin. How do I get him to take the nutrient suppliment since he can not eat solid food? He is very stubborn and about to drive me nuts because I am so worried. He did so well the first 2 weeks but this past week has been really bad as he can not eat anything. He can still drink ok but says that everything tastes like sh--!
