Excessive Mucus with Esophageal Cancer

Having eating problems with my esophageal cancer, I started drinking protein drinks to reach at least 60 grams daily. I started eating ICE cream. Some even with
a high-fat content. Drinking lots of milk. Instant coffee with fat and carbohydrates. I also drink turmeric tea and take supplements of turmeric. Things have gotten better. I have been able to eat lightly battered fish from Capt D. I can eat tacos now from Taco Bell. I just stay away from very solid foods like beef. I came to realize that the tumor in my throat was causing a gag reflex causing me to throw up and salivate. I am on the verge of chemo and radiation followed by min-invasive surgery. I hope this helps
