I had my last chemo tx in June 2012. I have a history of constipation. During my chemo tx I took stool softners and that helped as well as drinking lots of fluids. Now i have increased my fiber intake and this has helped. I have 4 plus bowl movements a day. I also take wheat grass with juice every night before bed. My onocologist did advise me not to take wheat grass during my chemo tx. Also no vitamin C during chemo tx. I have no neuropathy now but did have neuropathy during my chemo tx. My onocologist had me on a cocktail which consisted of vit b1, vit b6, and l-glutamine powder. I am followed at MD Anderson Cancer ctr every 6 months for ct scans. So far ct scans have been good.
