It has been fantastic reading all the posts this last week or so. What an amazing group you are.
We ( my father and I ) have finally figured out the plan for his chemo. It was a surprise to see how stressful it is just figureing what to do. So the plan is that he will start chemo in his home town and I will go there for the first few treatments. Home support has been set up so that if I can't be there he will have some help. We will decide after we see how he reacts whether he will transfer to where I live for the rest of the treatments. All his questions have been answered. I am a little concerned because he has developped swelling along his side. The docs say the chemo should take care of it, but his mets and the fact that he became so ill before diagnosis was due to neglect on their part, so I don't have much faith. He was diagnosed in Aug, but no treatment til now. The number of lesions has almost tripled. It is hard to know what to question, and what is normal.
Anyway, my question today is, Did you find certain foods to be easier to tolerate while on chemo? Or is it much like the flu, a BRAT diet til you feel stronger? Just wondering if anything is helpful beyond meds for nausea and diarhea.
Thanks for the support
