What are good foods to eat while in treatmant for Neuroblastoma?
I've heard that Chemo therapy can twist up your taste-buds, is this a NORMAL side-effect?

I don't really remember my taste buds getting twisted up =)
I think if you eat plenty of healthy foods to keep up your strength,you should be good. The only thing i would say,is ask your oncologist if there are any foods which you CAN'T eat with your chemo drugs.

When i was on my chemo for Hodgkins lymphoma, i was told by my onc that i could not eat:
banana's, cheese, Marmite (which is a yeast/malt savoury spread) and alcohol.

These foods would react with the drugs i was taking. Maybe this is why i didn't get sick or have too much illness during my chemo.

i was told that i couldnt eat raw foods because of the bacteria in them. chemo kills your all your blood cells so your white count will be low during treatment and a while after. but i have leukemia. it could be different for you.
