Re: What to take for chemotherapy

I just took my Kindle - blankets were provided and you're not there long enough IME, to need anything extra.

Re: What to take for chemotherapy

Hello! 

When I went for my first chemo last Tuesday, I took some slippers, a blanket, I wore comfy clothes, snacks and drinks (as you are allowed to eat and drink), magazines or books.

Also if you are on steroids, remember to take them to the hospital with you, as you could be there until late and they might end up keeping you up at night if you take them too late!

Good luck x

What to take for chemotherapy

Hi, I'm starting chemotherapy on Tuesday and just looking to find out what kind of things I should be taking with me? I am going to download a programme to watch on my phone and have a blanket as I've heard you can get cold? Are you allowed to eat and drink during chemo? 

 

Thanks for your help
