I hope this finds you well, my dad is now 8 weeks post Ivor Lewis and thankfully requires no further treatment but will be followed up v closely
I have seen several similar posts.......trying to get enough calories in and it's really getting him down. He is such a trooper and physically has recovered well in terms of getting out and about but he is still losing weight and it is really frustrating him! He has been given the all clear to come on holiday with us in 2 weeks but he still has his feeding tube in and he is scared this will still be in place for his holiday which he doesn't want
The feed is reduced at the minute but he lost MORE weight this week and he is really struggling- he is trying hard and he is also taking the build up drinks but any tips on foods that people found calorific? I have read crisps/chocolate/cheese etc am wondering about red meat? Is it worth adding cream or cheese to soups? Any tips will help, he is trying to do the little and often which works well some days but others he just doesn't fancy anything!
