Waiting to go to the hospital Friday. can’t eat.   Physically feeling not hungry 

  • It may be that it’s the anxiety causing you to lose your appetite for now. You’re stressed, and that can cause us not to feel hungry. 

    Maybe try to eat small amounts more regularly if you can face anything? Thinking about meals can put you off, but even having small things or snacks can be helpful to keep you going. You need to look after yourself.

    Take care

  • I lose my appetite when I get stressed.  To get me through such times I've used Complan nutritional drinks, available from Boots the Chemist,

    I was diagnosed with stage 2A squamous cell cervical cancer (node negative) in 2017 following symptoms: persistent, watery, yellow vaginal discharge then post-menopuasal bleeding.  My treatment was a radical hysterectomy followed by chemo-radiotherapy.  My long term side effects include lymphoedema and urinary retention which I manage with intermittent self catheterisation.
