Post Gastrectomy
My sister had a total Gastrectomy 4 weeks ago due to a GIST tumor.  She is having a difficult time finding things to eat.  She says she is hungry, thirsty and yet feels like she has the flu all of the time.  She has become depressed, and wishes she wouldn't have had the surgery.  When she does eat - she is in pain (bloating and gas) or the food runs right through her.  Any ideas, helpful tips will be appreciated.  She just wants to give up.
Thank you

Mary, call her doctor and get a referral to a nutritionist who work with people who have had issues such as post-surgical GIST problems. The doc should have someone he can refer you to.
