I had major surgery 3 weeks ago The dr cut

Patient

Q: I had major surgery 3 weeks ago. The dr. cut about a 10 in incision on my stomach. He removed a mess and cut out some leasiins, i had stitches in side and out. I'm 74 yrs and i weighed 171lbs and now i weigh 143. I can't eat, nothing taste good. I'm walking and trying to eat, but its very little. The dr. said everything should be leavening off. I'm scared. Can you please help.
