Reply to "Help needed dont know what to try"

hi apricot
sorry to hear you are having trouble swallowing etc has speech therapy been suggested to you?i had speech therapy because i couldn't swallow and it did help as i was given mouth exercises to do.on the lack of taste buds it is over 5 years since i finished treatment and now i do have subtle taste buds and can enjoy most foods although spicy foods can still burn my mouth.i had a peg for 5 years and was determined not to have it for life and thankfully i am managing now without one i do have freshubin energy drinks to help with the calorie intake.i don't have any suggestions for you except to keep trying,i remember the first things i ate was mushrooms yet i can't stand them now lol.due to my lack of teeth due to tooth decay and lack of saliva i seem to eat lots of good quality fish cakes and mashed potato and as i still can't bear the taste of veg i make myself colcannon.it really is trial and error i'm afraid.anyway good luck love shirl xxx
