Thank you for the ideas. I've tried ensure and protein shakes and since my taste buds are gone, they taste awful. However my husband makes me drink them. Yes, I had 8 treatments, once every 2 weeks, so I feel I didn't really get time to get over one before I was having the next one. The last 4, paclitaxal was really hard. It has caused bad neuropathy in my hands and feet so makes it very hard to walk too. I guess I'm being impatient too. I want the old me back.
