I empathise really do. I felt the same on chemo as my sense of smell went totally out of whack and everything seemed to smell just awful including me. But, I was contently assured by my husband and kids that everything which included me smelled just fine. I found this hard to believe at the time but had to put it down to chemo robbing me of my sense of smell. (amongst other things).
I used to sleep with a strong smelling bath bomb from lush at the side of my bed, sounds a bit weird I know lol but this kinda of cut through how bad everything else seemed to smell. Hope you know what I mean?
Rest assured. Things quickly come back to normal once your done. Its 11 weeks since my last one and Im enjoying how lovely things smell once again. simple things eh........
Hope this helps and look after yourself.
Phewee, I smell....help!!
I've just had my final FEC of the FEC -T chemo regime and I'm finding the smell of the chemo is coming out more and more of my pores and the smell is constantly making me gag and becoming unbearable.
Does anyone have any tips for getting rid, I'm allergic to scented soap etc so I'm really struggling with this...
