Are there any supplements for weight gain?

My dad had major stroke back in jan and had crainotomy, since then he is semi-conscious, feeding is done through NG tube.

He has lost lots of weight, only skin and bone left.

After you got your Brain Injury has anyone found out that you do not have appetite?

Like to the point you don’t eat most of the time?

I my case... My TBI shut off my ability to eat. So I had a feeding tube for almost 7mos. And I lost a massive amount of weight. I’m small to begin with. But I went for 125 to maybe 65 lbs. It’s not healthy. So here I am 7 years post Tbi.... I gain all the weight back and just in the last 6 months I started losing it again. I’m down to 107 lbs and I have NO desire to eat. I have to force myself to eat.

Any suggestion on what could boost up my appetite and help me gain weight. I do not like looking this skinny.

Thank u, everyone for your comments.
