My husband have a bleeing ulcer are on 2000mg epelim for severe epelepsie and weigh 54 is 1. 9m tall and need to pick up weight because he can't have lower intestine blockage removed unless my husband pick up weight he is so under weight dok says he could die if they do op now!
I would offer 6 small meals a day rather then 3 larger ones. Some people are put off by too much food on the plate and can eat nothing. There are products that are tasteless powders that add calories if added to food. Also I'd use nutritional supplements like ensure 4-6 times a day. offering high calorie foods for his meals helps too. Did the doc say how much weight he has to gain? If he can't eat, the doctor can put him on tube feedings or a product called total parenteral nutrition.
