I am soooooo frustrated, we saw the dr on Friday, and My husband refused to go to the bathroom before his weigh in.. He said water has weight. He then went to sleep last night and in his many trips to the restroom dropped 5 lbs overnight on our scale, in 8 hours. He's suppose to get in 3000 calories, tries things and says I can't finish, has more than likely 1200 calories.. No spare weight to lose. His dr said his treatment changes if the need to make a new mask.. I try to offer wide varieties, I shop and find old 'soft favorites'. And get looks like I don't get it. Most of the time the refusals are over taste. Are we eating for health or taste!?
To top it off, he can't have the regular nutrition drinks, he has glucerna that is mech lower in calories, and refuses the PEG. Today he's down under 30 ounces of water, and told me I am not giving him a chance.. I don't get it. I am afraid if we don't do what he should do he could be risking his life.
This week he told someone he didn't consider this a serious disease because he was going to kick it.. But I don't see/feel the kicking and it scares me. I've had cancer and I did fight.. Every moment, to do what I needed to..
Any words of wisdom? I will look like the cancer patient... I am ready to pull my hair out!
I can't really vent and get good advice anywhere but here.. Thank you.
