      Check with a local hospital, they'll know. Your doctor or doctor's office should know. See if your church can help you out.

      I looked into the macro biotic diet, saw the wisdom and knew I wouldn't follow it anyway. I do it lots of fruit and unprocessed food. I eat to live well and as long as possible.
      He will only change if he wants to live. Sounds like he's drowning in a "pity party". You and he know that a poor diet will hurt him. If he doesn't want to live don't ruin your life trying to change his habits. He has a choice to make it's his choice. People make stupid choices all of the time, sad to say. Blame his father's genes.

      Im going thru chemo now and my tastebuds are nonexistant...i can taste spicy and sweet. Alas, i know what i should be eating, but have no desire to eat cardboard tasting things. I spoke to my oncologist, he said just eat what you can, i would rather you eat than not. My eating habits now are atrocious to say the least. But I know this will pass after my nightmare is over. Just hang in there and keep the faith everything will work out. Prayer always helps. I crave strange concoctions. I do remember after my first chemo i wanted fruits and ice cream. Then everything began tasting like cardboard. I know this is probably not what you wanted to hear. Just be patient and see if he comes around on his own, if not, its like my doc said better to eat something and keep your strength up than not eating and deteriorating. Whatever happens, know my prayers are with you.

      Sounds to me like a control thing. He has total control over what he eats which is one of the few things he can control. It makes him independent of you, it defies the cancer (I know that sounds weird, but it makes (twisted) sense if you think about it), it is food he likes which makes him feel better.......even if it doesn't.

    Hello, GregP_WN: Thank you for your posts. It is very inspirational to read about someone who is not only a survivor, but 5 years cancer-free! Although my son's cancer is a different one than yours, he is also Stage II so your journey is very motivational and uplifting indeed!

      You are very welcome. I am happy to be able to do what I do for everyone on the site. Yes I am also happy to be a cancer survivor, this time is almost 5 years past my last treatment. I had a different type 25 years ago, Hodgkins disease. Had it twice in two years, then spent 18 years cancer free. When I was dx'd again 5 years ago it was squamous cell carcinoma. A different type, just for fun, I got tired of the old type of cancer I guess.
      Thanks for being with us and let me know if I can help with anything around the site.
