    I know exactly how you’re

    I know exactly how you’re feeling. It’s important to drink a lot during chemo treatments. After awhile even water became difficult to swallow for me - I started hating the taste of water!  A friend suggested adding fruit. It was helpful for me. I would get a pitcher and add strawberries and basil or citrus fruit. I soaked all my fruits and vegetables in water with vinegar to wash them thoroughly - very important when going through chemo treatments. When I was too lazy or exhausted to go through the process, I would add a touch of juice to my water. Hope this helps. Best of luck with your treatments!

    Flavor drops

    I drank a lot of Gatorade/Powerade as well (sugar-free) to help keep up my sodium levels.  If that is too strong a flavor, you might try "flavor drops" to give water a little taste (lemon, peach, raspberry, etc).  MIO, Dasani, Sweetleaft are some brands available in supermarkets.
