sorry to hear about your husband. Often chemo and radiation
can make the tumor
considerably smaller in esophageal cancer. And he might be able to eat better later. Avoid milk products as they can cause lots of slime. About the nausea
- you could try bands that go around the wrists and have buttons that press an acupuncture point
on the wrist (p6)- often used in pregnancy
or for car sickness. You would have to ask for them in the chemists or drugstore. You can also try buying ginger lolly pops - or ginger tea or even ginger ale. You can also make your own ginger lollipops.
Also ask your doctor for some high calorie astronaut food. Careful they might bring on slime - see if they have some things unlike milk.
Hope this helps a little.
You might also ask your clinics if they have a nutrient counselor.
