When Larry was first diagnosed in September and had difficulty swallowing, it was diet adjustment #1. Mostly soft, alot of soups, alot of chicken casseroles, ice cream, jello, shakes etc. Then came diet #2 when the treatments started and swallowing became easier. This diet consisted of everything and anything we could get in him, all high calorie and high protein. The last 4 weeks Larry is feeling great having gained all 30 lbs back and exercising like a madman in preparation for surgery March 22nd. My question is this; As I prepare for his aftercare which foods or drinks seem to have worked for all of you? Which foods have most of you learned to avoid? I would like to start preparing, freezing, and stocking up on whatever I can ahead of time. For example, a friend of ours had his surgery over 1 1/2 years ago, he just recently is able to handle bread. He did however have many complications and had a feeding tube for 10 months. Your input would be greatly appreciated!
