Hi everyone, I'm new here. My Dad has Esophageal Cancer/ Adenal Carcinoma and begins Chemo & Radiation treatment next week. (Also scheduled to have Esophagus removed in October) He has been having trouble getting food to go down since May, and he's lost about 30 lbs. Mom has been making potato soup for him and running it through the blender. They've also been adding Ensure to the soup to boost the calorie content, but he still can't get enough. Apparently he tried grits today, and that didn't work. Has anyone compiled a list of foods that "works great" versus "Don't Bother"? Or is it different for everyone?

Hi everyone. I was on the Fentynl Patch for many years but have been taken off of it via my pain management doctor. She is now giving me Norco but will be taking me off of those as well. Does anyone know of what helps with withdrawal symptoms? She seems to think that the Norco is equal to the Fentynl Patch but I have to vehmently disagree with her. Thank you and I'm really glad this site...
Hi all. Started treatment today. Just wondered if anyone wants to discuss anything, doesn't have to be treatment specifically. Would love to offer support and friendship to anyone needing. Have a good night.
