    Update on my husband trying to return to eating.  John has started some yogurt yesterday (2/3 of a serving total during the day) along with the continued tube feed.  He felt better yesterday than in all the days since the start of the new chemo treatment I mentioned, and it continued through the night with a decent night’s sleep and a good morning.  He had the rest of the yogurt and a tiny bit of chicken soup and experienced the return of the sharp pain he has experienced since the Whipple surgery, along with the onset of fever AGAIN.  Every time he has tried food, he has spiked a fever followed by vomiting.  We are stopping food for the day/evening and will see how the night goes. I pray for no vomiting. If anyone out there has experience or advice on how to return to eating after Whipple/TPN/Feeding tube, I sure would like to hear it! He continues to lose weight, and we need to turn this around. We discussed the situation with a nutritionist at his last chemo appointment and there seems to be no specific way to accomplish this, though she gave good (and consistent with past advice) input with regards to food to try, avoid, etcetera.  No high-fat foods, avoiding beef, nuts and high fiber foods for now.  Of course no alcohol.  No problems following these guidelines.
