Sorry to jump on board at this late stage but just saw the swimming comment. I asked my onc about this and he said I could swim, but not in the middle week of each cycle. Made me feel much better to know that
I know this thread is about products to help you through Chemo but on reading your reply i notice you are planning to take it easy, bit of exercise.Sounds like a great plan but not the swimming. I swim 3/4 mornings per week getting ready for work at the Gym but my oncologist was really clear this was a no no whilst having Chemo due to the risk of infection. If you go onto the monthly Chemo threads you may pick this up. Sorry if that is a dampener, it was for me but i am aware of the billions of bacteria floating in even the cleanest of pools and it was bliss to get back to it after surgery.
Good luck with your treatment. Take Care Gilly s.
I hadn't started the menopause when diagnosed but no periods since cycle 2 (now on 5) so I think the chemo has triggered it. I had read about the magnets but was very sceptical - might have to re-assess!
One of the best things I have received was a soft shawl from my mum, like this one.
It doesn't look much but has been invaluable - now I have no hair my neck gets cold, plus I am having hot and cold sweats, and it is comforting to wrap around me as and when required 🙂
Also some good hypoallergenic skincare, with a high spf, such as Clinique. My skin has become very photosensitive and blisters if I go out.
Best of luck to your mum! 🙂
