      It took me a good 3 months after treatment to eat again. Honestly, I think in retrospect that it was a psychological issue - after not eating for some 4 months in total, it was hard to put food in my mouth and trust the swallowing process. The only way I could resume eating was to tape up my feeding tube and tell myself that I had no choice but to eat... I started with porridge and moist, soft foods and took it slowl...
