Hi S&S! I have a few suggestions. Robert had a really hard time with feeling nauseous and vomiting (even before his diagnosis). Here are some of the things that worked for him: pudding, yogurt (fruit-on-the-bottom), applesauce, jello, and fruit smoothies. Nibbling throughout the day usually helps quite a bit - but of course I could never get him to do that! The medication Zofran worked very well, as did Protonix. Even though a balanced diet is always ideal, sometimes it's just about
calories - anything they can keep down (within diet restrictions of course) is better than nothing at all.
There were many times I had to 'force' him to eat, i.e. nagged him incessantly until he ate just to not hear my voice anymore!
But seriously, he would complain about
feeling weak and awful - and it was because he wasn't eating anything. I joke about
it (it's how I deal), but I do understand that it's hard to eat when you don't have the desire to, are nauseous, and are afraid of puking it back up. I would mention the medications to his doctor - they can help quite a bit.
