Drove myself to treatment and afterwards had a meeting with the Dietician. Told her I had ingested one can of the new Glucerna 1.5 last night and that it made me sick with horrible stomach cramps that lasted a couple of hours. It's just too rich for my intestines. So she advised to take only half a can at a time and see what happens.
No one is really worried about my weight as it had been stabilized for the last couple of weeks. I wish I had not purchased this case of Glucerna at $90. I'm not sure I will be needing it. I'm using the bottles from Walmart and they are working fine. The last time I ate anything by mouth was July 24th - 15 days ago.
Left her office and went to the Financial Advisor to complete another form for financial assistance from Terrebonne General Hospital. Will know something in a couple of weeks.
Today I ingested 510 calories, 54 grams of protein, and 20 ounces of water.
I'm taking more pain meds as my throat is hurting more. Had another bad episode at 4:00am this morning. Had to gargle and take more meds before I could go back to sleep.
Only 6 treatments left before I get to ring the bell.
