A lot of it was research I did, then asked the docs; the pharmacist working with the chemo nurse at Moffitt suggested the NuIron after checking with the doctor; they also put him on Megestrol in the hospital as he was anorexic; after I did some reading on it, I mentioned it to the docs and they did it; then within hours he was eating better; he started at 162 pounds a year ago, got down to 126; and is now about 141 pounds; recently added protein powder approved by his surgeon, which he mixes with banana, frozen yogurt, and frozen fruit. He seems to be gaining round on this regimen; in my mind I wonder if the liquid nutrition absorbs better than the food that isn't easy to digest. Prayers to you!
