Dear Herbpathy Team,

First a bit of background for my query - my father underwent liver resection for his cholangiocarcinoma and is currently undergoing chemotherapy for the same. There are a few active tumor growths in his liver. The cancer has not spread anywhere else.

Now the query - he's undergone severe weight loss and doesn't feel hungry at all. He doesn't feel like eating anything. It is coming to a situation where he forces himself to eat a little bit at meal times. Could you please suggest something that can help with his condition?
