Fri, Feb 1 8:44am · Nutrition and Cancer: Getting protein in my diet in Cancer: Managing Symptoms

More ideas…Visit your nearest health food store, such as GNC. They have a variety of protein supplements. Also consider plant based protein such as beans. Many vegans use these as their only source of protein. I have used these in soups and chili which combines beans with meat. Google vegan sources of protein and you will find many sources and recipes to try. How about soy or almond milk if you cannot tolerate dairy.Have you consulted a dietitian? Mine at Rochester Mayo gave me samples of supplements to try before I committed to buying. Hang in there…I still do not have saliva but have adjusted my eating habits and found a new normal.

You might want to check out "Beneprotein" by Nestle. It is an unflavored powder that mixes well in many foods and beverages.

Nov 3, 2018 · radiation burns in Cancer

My husband received very high dosages of radiation (5 days/week for 6 weeks) for base of tongue and lymph node cancer in his neck in the summer of 2017.The skin burns were very significant. May I pass along a treatment suggested by our radiation oncology nurse. Take 1 part white vinegar mixed with 4 parts water, soak a white cotton cloth and wring out excess ( I cut up men's white 100% cotton t-shirts). Place on burnt area for 15 minutes, remove and let area air dry. I am not lying…it does sting!!!, but gets better! Then liberally apply 1% Silver Sulfadiazine Cream (prescription). Do this 4 times a day. Be sure you use very clean cloths and a clean shirt every time. Within 3 weeks burns were completely healed. Check with your radiation oncologist before using this. Our nurse has 25 years of experience in this field and knows a lot of "out of the box" treatments. Aquaphor was no help for him. Good luck!
