My dad has just recently finished his 7 week chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment for cancer of the throat also a lymph node.

The 12 weeks later he's been back had a scan . Following week  he had his pet scan. AND NOW July 2018 Tuesday just gone... My dad's results have come back throat & neck all seems clear and his mouth id getting better each day. I MUST MENTION THAT HE HAS LOST HIS TASTE AND HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO EAT AT ALL. HASN'T HAD A SOLID NUTRITIONAL MEAL, 7 MONTHS NOW, THE ONLY NUTRITION HE HAS IS the drinks prescribed for him. My dad is "" more worried of starving to death than losing to this....!!"" His words...(this was also mentioned to the nurse and doctors..)

Which has broken me , no it's actually snapped my heart.. because NO BODY SEEMS TO BE INTERESTED IN OR BOTHERED ABOUT THE FACT MY FATHER HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO EAT. gets me really mad. Especially as he asked "" any questions?'" by the doctor and nurse. As this was his questions...

My dad has appointment's with his specialist this Monday. my mum will be with him. I'm also going as I can hear things which my parents may not. Take in. .

What I can say is he has to have 21weeks of chemo treatment...  Would appreciate if any additional questions or advice I could find helpful.

Hi there - my husband has not has radiation at all (yet) but he did need a feeding tube when he was first diagnosed back in November of 2016. We used Jevity and Ensure to put weight on but it was a strict regime throughout the day. He started with chemo various medications the first year and is now on immunotherapy and doing well on it. I am not sure if your father will regain taste but hopefully will be able to eat solids again soon. I am glad you are going with tomorrow - wishing you strength and a speedy recovery.
