Show Notes

* I am not a medical professional but I am a lived experience patient*ūüíú

 Before this horrible journey started I was a very social person. I was ( or had been) an event manager, worked in and around food and wine all my career, and even turned down an audition opportunity for MasterChef here in Australia. 

 I had Head & Neck Cancer (subsequent treatment) and a PEG tube feeder in my stomach for over a year. I didn't eat orally for 15 months. 

Episode 5 - It's not about the cook book but the recipe! The physical & mental constraints we experience as HNC treatment patients.

  In this episode I am discussing:- 

  1. Trismus and dry mouth
  2. Depression, anxiety, fear & failure 
  3. Breathe, meditation and stretching
  4. You can download the 4 Step Eating process  here Transition off  a PEG tube
