My oncologist at Vanderbilt university medical center ( which is a very well respected hospital among cancer treatment professionals ) told me he wasn't concerned about trying to control my nutrition , his only requirement in that department is that I don't loose any weight. But this is the one time in my life I was actually looking forward to starting a new diet and know I was doing everything possible for my health. So next time I saw him I tried to bring it up in a different way, I asked if he would refer me to a nutritionist so I can make sure I'm on the right track. Again he said" if you want to see a nutritionist that's up to you however there is no science that backs any of this up , however if you do I must insist you let me know exactly what changes you plan to make before you actually make them because they can disrupt treatment , and again said the most important thing is don't loose any weight. Has anyone else ran into this problem? I know I should follow doc orders above all but this seams to be a very strange position for a doc to take. But again he is an oncologist and professor at one of the best cancer institutions in the country. And other docs here seem to have same mindset. Anyway I bought a couple books people suggested but I'm reluctant to make many changes.
