I have a friend with cancer. She is currently undergoing both radiation and chemo therapies. Even though she is taking appetite enhancing drugs, she still has no appetite and continues to lose weight. Can anyone suggest some foods that I could recommend or send that others have found pallatable under similar medical circumstances? Thank you in advance for any and all replies.
Something else to keep in mind is that each chemo med [plus all of the adjuvant meds] can alter taste perception in different and unpredictable ways. Even a favorite food can be unappetizing depending on where a person is in their therapy.
Let your friend's sense of smell be your guide as to what she might enjoy. And, bring her some of her old favorites including foods not typically considered convalescent fare.
