I have colon cancer and have the whole colon removed. I am doing the chemotherapy now; I have bad appetite and getting enough nutrition is a problem. I tried to dirnk ENSURE as supplemental; but it contains dairy product which caused the diarrhea so I stop using ENSURE. Is there any hi-protein product that I can take to help boost my nutrition? The product should not contain milk content to avoid diarrhea. I can dirnk soy-milk.
If you can tolerate soy milk, then make soy milk shakes - soy milk, and soy ice cream blended together. If you can tolerate fruit, such as banana, that can be added to it too, and you have a nutrient dense drink (equal to an Ensure)!
