I am 5 weeks out now and have been fortunate to be able to eat without to much of an issue. Although I have not tested many of the foods I ate before being dx with cancer and treatments the ones I have are ok. My question is how long did it take to eat a full portion/plate of food. I used to eat a full plate of food and then some, obviously why I was over weight but thats not the point, the point is I could finish it. Now I fix a plate with a small portion of what I plan to eat and think no problem, then I find myself done eating and food left over. I think man that was not much food I should have finished it but just could not. No big deal its great to just be able to eat again and believe me Im grateful. I just wonder if the new Norm is less eating. Has anyone gotten back to eating as they did before treatment? Big bites and reasonable amounts of food. I know it takes small bites and lots of drink to finish foods now, I remember before cancer I could eat my meal and not drink a whole lot so I realize the obivious compromises that must take place. So to conclude I will be blessed as long as I can just eat so trust me not a big deal on how much, but since we all hope to get back to the way we were in many ways, I just wondered if this was in reach. PS I realize my weight loss shrunk my stomach and that may have something to do with it.
