After care

My hubby has recently completed 7 weeks treatment for throat cancer, radiation every day and chemo weekly. 

He is still very weak and tired, struggling to get enough nutrition despite truckloads of sustagen, and can not put back any weight.

Any help or suggestions?

Re: After care

Hello @Rondagraham,


How is your husband doing today? I hope he is feeling at least a little bit better Heart


We have a publication available in PDF format: Nutrition and Cancer, that might be of help. If you like, I could also pop a copy into the mail - just send me a private message with your address and I'll get it organised for you.


Does anyone have any suggestions that would help @Rondagraham?
