Swallowing & Nutrition when its difficult

Swallowing & Nutrition when its difficult


Possibly the greatest change to the lifestyle of the post-oesophagogastric surgery patient occurs with eating and digesting food.  This booklet offers advice on, and recipes for, balancing the diet, including the addition of food supplements.  It addresses some of the principal eating problems such as loss of appetite, nausea, indigestion, and diarrhoea, and explains the effects of having a stent fitted, or undergoing radiotherapy of chemotherapy, on eating and digestion.  Extra recipes can be found in the OPA’s booklet ‘Recipes for when food is a problem’.
