My father recently had a Laryngectomy for Larynx Cancer. He is inpatient at Mass General trying to recover.
He is breathing through a trach but they are trying to allow him to eat normally without a feeding tube. He is losing weight fast and he’s been trying to eat lots of different things but he keeps choking. Thick milkshakes seem to be working the best right now. Thick liquids are easier to keep out of the trach than thin ones.
So, in the interest of trying to help him get out of the hospital and/or avoid the feeding tube, I am looking for a way to get him some Soylent ASAP to try to get him the energy and nutrition he needs in a form that he won’t choke on. I already ordered some a few months ago, but haven’t gotten it yet. Does anyone in Boston have a supply they’d be willing to sell me?
Or, is there some way to contact the company directly and try to get them to help me out? I haven’t found one.
Thanks axcho; I’ll tag @JulioMiles.
