These folks have had all sorts of discussions on food and eating. Maybe post your question to them, also.

I can't even begin to tell you how many "tips" I've read or received on food and eating over the last three-and-a-half months. I've heard it all. I've been told about four times to freeze the Boost. Tried it last month. He hated it. Said he'd rather slug it down quickly than have to take bites of it which linger on his tongue and taste buds.

I don't need tips on food and eating. Honestly. I've been through the entire rigamarole and tried everything that was suggested to no avail. I am looking for people whose taste buds were destroyed by chemo so I can talk to them about their experiences with their taste recovering, and how long it took, etc. If I can find anyone who was on Cisplatin to talk to, that would be even better, as I'd have someone else's experiences to compare my husband's to.
