Reply to "Help needed dont know what to try"

hi there
sorry to hear your dad is struggling with very limited taste buds,the peg will help a lot for nutrician but there is nothing better than being able to taste food,i had my peg for 5 years and although my tatebuds are still limited they are 60% better than they were in the early days when everything tasted bland or stung my mouth.i guess it's just trial and error but get him to keep trying different thing even just dunking a biscuit or two.no taste buds has be one of the worse things after treatment which i personally got very upset over.with time some of the taste buds will come back and the more he can manage to eat the less he will need the peg.i was over the moon when my peg was removed and although i still have a couple of freshubin energy drinks a day i am fairly happy with what i can eat these days.wishing all the best to your dad.love shirl xxx
