My hubby is 3 1/2 weeks post radiation/chemo. He is doing well and is healing. His throat is barely sore now. My problem is getting him to eat/drink. It took the entire day yesterday for him to drink an 8 oz Boost. No, he says, he has no trouble swallowing but nothing tastes good. I am tired of dealing with the peg and tube feedings. Should I let him do all his feedings and completely back off? Should I quit bugging him to drink and eat? He is not taking in any solids, just an occasional milkshake, instant breakfast, or Boost. BTW he quit eating after the first chemo 4 months ago, even before the radiation started.
