The 24th of this month will make 2 months since I finished the treatments. Honestly, this "recovery" period is worse than anything I endured during the treatment. It seems like I can't eat anything (never had a PEG) except grits with fried eggs mixed in. Anything sweet taste like motor oil (especially Boost/Ensure drinks) and anything dairy irritates my throat to the point that I can't eat it. In fact, a many things irritate my throat in a way that makes them impossible to eat. I'm trying to swollow more on my left side since it seems to be the most healed. I feel like my choices of eating things, especially high calorie foods, are sooooooo limited.
Also, I went to my rad dr yesterday and he discovered that my pulse was running at 125. So they sent me up to the onc dr office and they ran blood tests and everything and said everything seemed to be ok and my bloodwork was perfect. It leveled off at around 100 bpm before I left there and has been so since. Any of you guys go through this? Is it something I should be concerned about?
My main question is: Can any of you guys remember some things you ate that were high calorie, non-dairy, and not sweet? lol. I know that's a hard one, but anything helps. Can't keep eating grits and eggs.
