My husband has stage IV stomach cancer. He has been doing pretty well with this new round of chemo except for the horrible nausea/vomiting. Since being diagnosed in October food means nothing to him anymore. Most days he keeps it all down but some days are bad. It is so hard to tell someone to eat when they feel like crap and are nauseous. How do I get him to keep the weight there? He seems to be just wasting away. He won't do the J-tube. Anyone have any suggestions? Certain foods to eat? Nighttime seems to be when the most vomiting occurs. Seems to be that food does not digest properly anymore. Any advice would be great. We have tried all the anti-nausea meds and none really seem to make it go away.
