She has lost 50 lbs and does not have an appetite. She eats a little but is still not getting her strength back. He is very depressed, crying because she us unable to go and do now and also can't drive. She has never been dependent on anyone and now she has to have someone take her everywhere. This has led to part of the eating disorder I'm sure.
Should we have her put on a feeding tube for a month or so to see if she gets her strength back and is able to get around and do things like she was. We are all at a loss as to what to do now. She is 77 years old and prior to the gall bladder surgery, she was getting around just great. It took almost a month for the doctors to determine what the issue was with the weight loss so she got much worse as the time went on. We have tried everything to get her to eat. She eats small portions but not enough to get her back on track. I can understand her depression, since she is unable to get around like she was.
