A thread on the colo-rectal board made me think to post this. They thread was regarding the dreaded diarrhea so many of us experience with the chemo-rad treatment. I remembered that one of my oncology nurses suggested that I get some coconut macaroons and eat two a day. There is supposedly something about the coconut oil that helps your digestive tract. I did not need to be persuaded to go my Publix and get a container of their scrumptious macaroons. I did see an improvement and many days they were the only thing that really appealed to my compromised appetite. Was it all in my head? Who knows, but they sure were tasty. Just a suggestion.
