How do lifestyle factors and exposure to environmental substances affect our cancer risk?
Every one is different in their reactions to food cold or hot. Just do what works for you. It will take a good three to six months to get rid of the chemo from your body in that foods might begin to taste somewhat like normal again for you. My taste have changed since before and after the treatments. For me cold items were painful and I avoided them. Again taste buds are from the saliva glands and they were imp...
The road to recovery will be a long one. Be patient and each day month by month you will be better.
I was not able to eat anything four to six weeks after the completition of chemo second round and radiation.
I finally started with chicken broth slightly warm, then progressed to top ramen noodles and chicken soup with out eating the chicken as I was unable to swallow it.
Determination has a lot ...
Gravy will always be your best friend now and in the future along with ranch dressing etc.
I finished my treatments in May 2010 and each year I am better than the previous year. I was even told by some frineds last week that saw me last December 2011 that I looked much better this year. It is a slow progress but the further out from treatment the better off you will be. After a while you learn that ...
Thanks for the very positive reply. I hope your prediction comes true for both of us and I will be here with you to help others. God Bless you.
I can only tell you of my experience, The first doctor I went to wanted to do chemo and radiation from day one of treatment with chemo and radiation lasting six weeks.
I went for a second opinion of a very good friend who referred the head of Throat cancer at UT Southwetern who had all of his patients go through chemo, first wait two weeks for recovery and then start the radiation treatments once a day until the end...
I will try the real lemons. thanks for the suggestion.
I have read a lot of information on medical studies and the life expectancy for stage four tonsil cancer was not real impressive. Several studies showed close to the same results two different rates, one for caucasions and also for blacks but average was around 62 months for Caucasions and around 50 for blacks.
This is my second time with cancer pre...
Thanks for the tip on Gatorade and the web site info, that makes it much easier.
As far as the Lemon, my wife bought the bottled concentrate and I put in about two to three ounces in a 14 oz bottle. Really stong but I think it helped.
Best of luck to you and everyone else.
I can agree on most of the things you said but I still firmly believe, where there is a will, there is a way and that is what 24 weeks of full stress specialized training taught me. You mind is very powerful and you can control a lot of things if you put your mind to it.
Yes you will never forget to take a water bottle with you anywhere for the rest of your life. I have repeatedly tried to eat white meat chic...
Be patient and tell your husband to keep up the fight. Remember everyone is different on how they accept and handle the treatment. If you husband is like me I was down and out for six plus weeks weeks after treament closer to eight. The pain mediation was so strong and I was in such bad shape I basically was almost bedridden, sleeping most of the day for the first four weeks after radiatio...
You have got a lot of good information here. Listen and try to use all of it. Walmart also sells seltzer in small 10 ounce bottles Canada Dry that have a twist off cap to reseal. These work good at keeping the fizz. I hope this works for you as I did not know about this when I went through as I wasn't aware of this site.
Cisplatin is also a base drug I was given Chromo cisplatin for six ...
