I feel very blessed that my Mom is still with me one year after her surgery. Since then however she has never regained any appetite and now has severe heartburn, back pain and anemia. She weighs 100 pounds on a 5'2" frame. Needless to say she looks bad and that has caused her to be a bit of a recluse. She has visited her various doctors on numerous occasions for all of these things and they have given her medications to deal with these other issues. Scans have also (thankfully) come up clean.
I am looking for suggestions regarding weight gain and if anyone has experienced any of the aforementioned problems themselves post surgery. My mother is allergic to eggs and therefore many of the protein bars and drinks out there are of no use. She does drink Ensure everyday but it is a struggle for her just to get that down. Most tastes and thoughts of food make her feel nauseous. Any advice?
