Through talking and listening to patients – and the many people who regularly contact Bowel Cancer Australia for support and advice – we understand there is a real need for specific nutritional guidance and practical tips for patients who are slowly wanting to rediscover a normal appetite for food during cancer treatment and beyond.
A diagnosis of bowel cancer will usually always involve some level of change to diet and lifestyle. Food and diet can often cause issues on the road to recovery. You may not be able to tolerate some of the foods you once enjoyed and your new bowel habit might be hard to come to terms with.
Living beyond bowel cancer herself, our qualified Bowel Care Nutritionist is able to draw upon her own unique experience when helping patients, carers and families with practical advice on food choices during treatment and in recovery, including specific nutritional advice, menu planning and cooking tips, such as how to modify favourite recipes.
The bowel cancer app also contains practical nutritional information such as weekly meal/menu planner; shopping list; as well as high and low fibre recipes.
