    • Welcome, I am not going to be much help as for a specific diet as my mom receives chemo with her immunotherapy and she eats whatever doesn't taste vile or makes her heartburn worse on that particular day.  At initial diagnosis, my mom was referred to oncology staff who discussed the various side effects of her treatment and discussed diet.  While receiving chemo the staff would regularly come to see her and give her tips on how to deal with any side effects or her diet concerns.  Perhaps the oncologist that diagnosed your husband could give some ideas or there is someone within the department who consults on diet??? I'm sorry to hear that the stress of this situation is causing a rift between you and your husband.  Most of us has felt this, even if just for a short time, as we deal with the stress of living with cancer.  I imagine it is very hard being in the same house and around one another all of the time when the both of you have so many emotions to deal with.  I hope that once the two of you find your "new norm" (whatever that's supposed to mean!), that the two of you can treasure your time together once again. Take Care, Steff  
    • Hi, my husband is a Viet Nam Vet and was exposed to Agent Orange while he was there.  Forty four years later he has been diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer with mets to the liver, lymph nodes and spine.  Right now we have him on cannabis oil doing the 90 day protocol, he is a little past the 30 gram mark, working his way to 60 grams next month.  What I really could use help with is discussing what kind of diet should he be on.  I am so confused with this subject.  I've heard Keto, Vegan, I've been told it's ok for him to eat meat and eggs, etc.  I have been told by several people that Vegan is the only way to go because he needs to be on a plant based diet.  We are now fighting and hardly speaking, I am so frustrated, tired and stressed at this point.  I could really use some guidance when it comes to diet and what he is allowed and not allowed to eat.  What are others in this group doing as far as meals go?  TIA
    • Thanks Tom I will try all of the above!  This has definitely been a challenge. Thanks again for taking time to answer.
