Hubby is 6 weeks post last rad. Stage III tonsil cancer. He has been peg tube dependent for all nutrition and liquids since about the fourth week of treatment, so for about two months now. Doc is encouraging him to try to start eating some liquids, soft foods. He says he wants to but he struggled so much with nausea during and after treatment (caused by chemo, rads, meds, mucous, etc) he hasn't tried to eat for fear of getting sick.
I'm wondering if I could find something to stimulant his appetite, it might just push him past his fear of getting sick. He does not feel hungry and while food looks good, nothing sounds good. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
