I've ordered some cookbooks from the library, to make gentle meals that won't hurt an oncology patient's mouth and throat.It's not as easy as one would think. The dry mouth and inability to swallow undermind every attempt to eat. Anyone have experience , please share. this is frustrating.

Dysphagia

Hi Tosby, Sorry that I didn't see this until now.DH has been eating yogurt that I strain (so it's like a greek yogurt consistency)We are picking up Nestle carnation 560 calorie(look online, we pick up ours from a medical supply at about$ 49per case of 24 cans.) drink to mix in a blender with muscle milk and this helps the food move down. Penne is way better than spaghetti or rotini and extra sauce is got to be available.Just keep trying , just keep moving forward. <3

extra thought

Sheherd's pie with gravy, Chicken and turkey are too stringy.But ham with mashed potatoes works ok. <3 Diane
PS we've been eating oatmeal with a Tbs of olive oil (cooked in microwave) for the extra calories. Maple syrup makes it more palatable for him.The shakes I told you about are a part of EVERY meal. Don't lloose heart, he's going to get better slowly but surely.
