Re: June 2018 Chemo Starters

Hi Embolorry
Welcome to the forum and the thread.
Re. side effects.... The first week is the toughest so if you can get any help with childcare that would be ideal. Also if you can take any time off work then try to do so for that first week. You may get some sickness, but they will give you medication for that. Also, you will probably experience some fatigue so just prepare yourself, in terms of stocking up the fridge, washing etc. So then you can just relax.
Re.fasting.....there is a thread on here that deals with that, and also you can message Blueash who is a community champion who has experience of fasting.
Best wishes

Re: June 2018 Chemo Starters

Hi ya,
I am due to start chemo on 4th June, 3x FEC then 3xT. Am very worried re side effects as I am a single mum to two girls and have a full time job.
Thinking of trying fasting to help with side effects, but all medical people I have asked have said β€˜no’ to fasting.
Would also like to know if the cold cap is worth trying???
Thanks all
