A while ago, in a topic I no longer recall, I said that I had been "told" not to drink alcohol during chemo. I believe it was one of several dietary guidelines in a handout I was given prior to my first chemo. Carlene had asked me about that, but I've been unable to find the source. I do know that it did not come directly from my doctor. Anyway, I'm posting about it now, because I asked my doctor about it today, and he said exactly what Carlene's doctor (and others, I know) said: in moderation.
For me, it makes no difference, because I did drink a few glasses of wine at Christmas, and my neuropathy was much worse the very next day, so it's no alcohol for me till the neuropathy is 100% gone. I just wanted to clear this up, because I do not want to be a source of misinformation!
