We are at 5 weeks post and have the liquid swallowing down pretty darn good, but food is a bit of a struggle. He says nothing seems appealing. Kind of has a funny taste in his mouth. Has tried some strawberry jello and can taste the strawberry and not too bad tasting. Drinking his Ensure/Boost by mouth now and the chocolate and strawberry seem to upset his stomach and the vanilla is ok...just no taste. Thought we'd try some scrambled eggs and he is resisting. My feeling is that nothing will taste good as it once did for some time and in the meantime, we just need to go after the food swallowing regardless...am I being to harsh? I don't know what that's like to have that feeling and possible upset stomach over it. Any ideas for food regarding texture, or possibly a little more appealing because of that "funny taste"? His stomach is still pretty weak...so maybe it's all trial and error?
