My husband age 74 was diagnosed with Adenocarcinoma Cancer in May, 2022 after choking on food while on vacation. His treatment was 23 sets of radiation, 5 chemotherapy followed by a 13 hour Esophagectomy with Thoracic Esophagogastrostomy Creation. He was told after the surgery that the radiation/chemotherapy had removed his tumor. My question now is that he is losing weight and seems to continue losing it. He was at 205 (5'6") prior to any treatment. He is now at 167. He has been taking protein shakes such as Premier Protein, eating small meals and doing some exercise but I am getting worried. Any diet tips? Also, is this normal? It is 5 months post surgery.
