Eating after Treatment

Last Modified: June 8, 2012

Question:

Will I ever be able to eat normal food again and not have to worry about it getting stuck?

Answer:

Valaree Williams MS RD LDN, Clinical Dietitian Specialist, Department of Radiation Oncology at Penn Medicine, responds:

Your tolerance and ability to eat a variety of foods will likely improve over time after treatment. You may find a few foods that are difficult to tolerate long term. It would be beneficial to meet with a registered dietitian to discuss methods to modify your favorite foods for better tolerance and with a speech language pathologist to assist with swallowing.
