Havent tried pineapple, have seen it suggested a few times. If the weather picks up tomorrow i'll hit the shops &try everything mentioned. Went to the drs yesterday & she reckoned my mouth ulcers are actually cold sores ugh. I'm resorting to pureed food & drinking thru a straw. I thought id done so good till now. I'm dreading monday its my 4th session but 1st of the docetaxel. I need to be strong but my mouth is making me feel so low, i feel like giving up. I wont, i cant.
Hi, new to this. Have got thru 3 fec sessions. Felt ok generally enough to go to work but this 3rd one has floored me energy wise. My mouth has decided to fall apart with ulcers, ive slways suffered with food tasting off due to metallic taste. Staying hydrated has not been easy, even water tastes horrible! Ive now discovered that i like flat lucozade. Try it. Anything is worth a go.
Frozen bananas make great ice cream..my father in law tosses frozen berries in and processes them, its delicious. Fresh ginger grated in hot water is good too..even the steam.
Xx starting chemo later in january, glad you reminded me about the bananas 😉
Hi Murphy think Ive just replied to you in December thread? There is so much info in cyberland about fasting and treatment. I was just wondering if anyone knew where would be a good place to look for some evidence based information. C x.
Sorry if this has been asked before but has anyone tried fasting the day before treatment and did if make any difference to the side effects? Just wondering if its worth a try as just emerging from my first on the 2nd December following a particularly bad reaction. C xx
