Diet Issues

Hi Team, I am suffering from lymph node tuberculosis. Treatment was supposed to be for 6 months, I would be completing 4 months in next 10 days. But I am facing issues with my food habit. I can't eat properly, and thus feel weak. Being a working I can't focus much on it. I want a guidance regarding same. I have suffered from typhoid before this and my diet degraded badly because of continuous illness. Now I am not able to eat much resulting in weakness bodyache. Also I got very sensitive recently, weather changes get me caught up with fever and cold. It would be great if I can get some help from your end. Thanks, Rituja Srivastav
