My Neuro-oncologist told me "eat more",and to add a shake that has the extra vitamins needed. I've tried 3 brands and selected the one that suits my taste since all three are very similar in contents. I learned too to change my diet to ease some of the effects. knowing I will be constipaTED THE FIRST TWO THREE DAYS i WOULD EAT MORE FIBER AT THE BEGINNING of my chemo THEN CHANGE TO A LOW FIBER diet SINCE ABOUT A WEEK LATER I WOULd START A TWO THREE DAY DIARREA cycle.
as soon as I get my avastin + irinotecan chemo I get extremely nauseated so I go to sleep-11-10 hrs. from the hospital to my room. Take my antinausea when needed to avoid and or minimize vomiting.And slowly but surely start recovering. Now that I am only on avastin i still go to a similar cycle that I dont remember having when I was on Temodar

No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
