Hi Louise, I have been posting in the March thread as I thought I would be starting at the end of March, but my first FEC has been confirmed now for 4th April.

Hi loulou, I'm one of the amazing august ladies so finished chemo in December. I was reading your comments re diet while on chemo and the best thing I can say is listen to your body, it will tell you what and when you can eat. If you feel like eating something go for it. There will be days when you may not feel like a lot of food and then there will be other days when you will eat everything in sight, just be sensible about it and you will get through chemo and you'll be amazed how quickly it will pass. Hope all goes well for you and all the other girls going through or about to start the chemo trail, hugs to all xxx

Hi Sue

 

Very apprehensive but really want to get started now. I've read a lot of these pages whilst in the waiting room and now I know exactly what im dealing with I just want to crack on. Have you decided if you are using the cold cap?? I think I am going to give it a go but make sure I have my wig in place if needed. Dont know how interested you are in diet etc but quite a few ladies have limited there carb intake 2 days before and 2 days after chemo, I will also be trying that, along with water,  water and more water, if my stomach can take it!! 

 

Going to continue checking out the tips from the ladies who been there and done it Smiley Happy

 

 

Take care xxxx
