On my first round I got thrush and it is horrible. I have my second round Monday October 8th. Any one know how to prevent getting it again? I do not want it again.

Talk to your oncologist about your side effects. Premedications including steroids are given prior Chemo and after that
Good luck
You can do it

I remember reading a post on this board about drinking a slurpee or sucking on ice while having the chemo to prevent mouth issues. Maybe someone can chime in with this.

Best of luck for a better time with the next treatment.

Hugs, Renee
