Chemo created

Options

i developed lower than average Sodium from Chemo a yr ago.  Since thanI have been hospitalized 2xwith low Sodium.  Just got released from My second trip were I dropped to a record breaking 109, which I had a seizure than a stroke.  Not a good gift for your 60th birthday. So know another side effect from. Chemo.  So tired of No saliva, dry mouth having to watch fluid intake & being hospitalized for sodium drops.  Really don't need another Sodium Drop & stroke.   Not fun at all. So be careful if you get this problem !!!!

    be better

    DD,

    I am sorry that you have been having such a time getting to your new normal. Hopefully, the regular side effects (tired, no saliva, dry mouth) are all you have to get used to moving forward. 

    Be careful.

    Matt

    Cupping

    Have you tried cupping to get chemo out of your body after treatment? My husband is almost finished with week 2 of 7 chemo radiation treatments. The practitioner who does cupping & acupuncture for me was telling me about cupping on a cancer survivor. She said the first time she did it the woman was really sick for a few days as it pulled the chemo out of her muscles, but got better each successive time. Just a suggestion- I do not claim to be an expert.
