First a quick update. I'm 72, have EC stage 2B or 3 and have finished 38 days of radiation and chemo at a 5 day twenty four hour treatment with a 2 week rest in between treatments. Surgery for removal of the esophagus is in 2 weeks.
I will be alone when I get home, so I need to stock up on things that I will need to eat before I go into the hospital. I'm allergic to dairy products and eggs, although I have been eating them during my treatment stage in order to put on and maintain the massive amount of weight that I had lost from my Cervical cancer and original loss of ability to eat with EC. For some strange reason I have had no reactions to my allergies during my treatment.
Can any of you share what you have eaten after you got home. The doctor said that he would not send me home until I could eat at least jello. I've managed to put on 30 pounds, so I have something to work with. And yes, I had fun putting it on. ;o)
