Chemotherapy, as anyone who has gone through will tell you, can come with its very own, serious side effects. The radiation from the treatment can make your mealtime especially difficult as chemotherapy can alter your appetite and your sense or taste and smell. It can make you nauseous, making it difficult to keep food down. You may experience diarrhea or constipation, severe weight loss or gain, and/or pains from dry mouth or mouth sores. All these potential symptoms can make maintaining a healthy diet extremely hard and this is at a time where being well fed with healthy foods is imperative to maintain strength to fight off any illnesses that may arise during your weakened state.
To aid your journey during chemotherapy, we at Breast Cancer Car Donations have put together a guide on maintain a healthy diet during chemotherapy. While you should be in contact with your doctor about your diet, this can be a great guide to start to your diet plan.
