MyDad is so sick. I dont know what to feed him. He gets disentery really bad. Had him in ER rehydrating yesterday. I need help! Radiation 5 days a week, chemo Fridays for 6 times. Only mad two. They say he is on the lowest dose.
Help! We got the disentery slowed down but now his tummy hurts. He is 81 yrs old.
Thank you,

BRAT diet till he feels better.....


That always slowed stuff down for me....

Scalloped potatoes. Fixed a big bowl before each chemo treatment. Nibbled all day off of it.

Hugs, Kathi

When I went through Rad/chemo I had awful diarrhea. The only food which I was able to tolerate was rice. Hubby made a big pot of rice and put it in the frig. I would take a cup of rice and add chicken stock 2 minute in microwave ...instant rice soup!!

Radiation sure does a number on the colon. 1 year post radiation at my colonoscopy it was "interesting" to see the red inflamed areas of my colon which was a direct result of radiation. 2 years post rad at my most recent coloscopy my colon is back to "normal".

I should also mention that your Dad should try to keep up his fluid intake I drank gallons of gatorAid. Can't stand the stuff now!!!
