This may sound really dumb but I don't understand how chemo and the our immune systems work in the sense that they seem to be fighting each other not working together. Chemo knocks down our white blood cells which are supposed to kill the cancer; right? How does that help? Won't that just make us worse? I know the chemo is supposed to kill the cancer cells but how does weakining our body help?
I'm sorry if thats a stupid question..and honestly my doctor prob told me the answer but it all came at me so fast. None of this makes any sense to me. I keep reading and reading everything..all of this advice, what to eat and not eat..supplements to take and not take..how does anyone figure all of this out? Im a bit of a dork..I like to know everything (smiles)..and sugar..does everyone stay away from it? I miss chocolate a lot
