I'm now day 2 since my first FEC-T chemo and have been feeling fine up until now. I can start to feel myself going a bit downhill. Aching back and feeling a bit fuzzy in the head. No nausea. Slept well last night. I've been making a lovely smoothie every day, which may be helping with nausea. If anyone else wants to give it a try, here is the recipe: 1 slice fresh pineapple (include the middle core, as there is lots of goodness in it) 1 slice frozen mango (easier than cutting up a fresh one and makes the smoothie nice and cold) 1 thumb sized piece of ginger (anti-sickness, anti-inflamitory) - peal and cut small 1 thumb small finger piece of turmeric (anti-inflamitory) - peel and cut small A few grinds of fresh black pepper (this allows your body to absorb the turmeric, otherwise the turmeric gets metabolised too quickly) 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp honey (optional) Almond milk - or other type of milk Liquidize into a smoothie. It's deliciously zingy and really good for you. Makes about 250ml - enough for 1 large or 2 small smoothies. If you don't have fresh turmeric and ginger, you can use powdered 1/2 tsp turmeric / 1 tsp ginger. It's adapted from this http://www.spinach4breakfast.com/turmeric-and-ginger-smoothie/ Let me know if you try it.
