Problems during chemo

Last time I had chemo (2 weeks ago) I sucked ice pops as often as I could, the nurse had put them in their own freezer so every time I needed one I had to ask them to get it, which was a pain for them as well as me.

I found the sweetness wasn’t so good, but I have to say that my mouth and breath was only bad for about a week after chemo this time.

Next week when I have 3rd dose I am going to suck on ice cubes, keep them in a cool bag and get them as often as I can. Bit difficult wearing the ice gloves, but will manage somehow.

I do think it made a difference, so its worth a try anyway.

BTW so far (touch wood) I haven’t had mouth ulcers. But I have had tingly lips and sore teeth.
