Memories! I lived on soup, coddled eggs, and avocado. I must say I started juicing after surgery, and still juice once a day, for breakfast every day. I also did a lot of protein shakes. I had to be strong for radiation treatment, and I did very well with energy levels during radiation. After radiation, my mouth was so burnt, that I lost around 40 pounds. I could hardly drink It was the most difficult part of it all. But here I am, four and a half years later, having regained about 30 pounds, and strong and active. I eat almost everything, that is, if I can bite it. Even though I did a lot of opening mouth exercises, my bite is limited. I take longer time to eat, but I think that is to my advantage.
