"My weight gaining drinks are delivered really quickly"

About: Adult community services / Nutrition and dietetics

(as the patient),

I have been using the Rotherham Home Care nutrition and dietetics service, as I have lost a lot of weight recently and have been diagnosed with cancer. The dietician ordered drinks for me so that I can gain weight.

I phone up and they get delivered really quickly. They taste okay. I had the vanilla flavour at first, but I found that they were heavy on my stomach and left me feeling quite full. They were more like a food than a drink.

The service does offer an assortment of flavours. I’ve now got the cappuccino flavour which I like the taste of.
