Need diet advice for Chylous Ascites after removal of 27 malignant lymph nodes

Posted by oin888


 I had a radical hysterectomy on Nov 18th, which also included the removal of 27 lymph nodes in the pelvic region.  As a result I am suffering from Chylous Ascites (retention of the lymphatic fluid in my peritoneal cavity).  It is extremely uncomfortable and have been prescribed octreotide.  However, I would like to try to manage this affliction with diet.  I have been told to eat a very high protein, low to non-fat diet.  The challenge is, I need to gain weight as well.  Does anyone have any recommendations for  HIGH PROTEIN, HIGH CALORIE, LOW TO NON-FAT FOODS?

 Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
