My father will begin chemo next week. We reviewed the plan with Dr.Dorff and followed Dr. Kwon’s recommendations except she said it would be better to begin with Jevtana instead of Docetaxel. As i was looking through many of the posts and reading the responses from others i noticed that fasting and chemo is a good idea. And interestingly Dr. Dorff when at USC was part of the team that conducted the study. I failed to mention it today because there were 1000 other questions i had about beginning chemo the side effects and damage to organs etc. I find it interesting that she never mentioned it. I did email
Her and maybe because it’s Friday she never got back to me. So for those of you that have fasted what do you eat/ drink etc. what is a tolerable schedule 72 hours fasting before and after? Just water? Or is low calorie food acceptable. I couldn’t find any info online about a set fasting diet. Any info would help. Thank you all for your encouraging and amazing responses. I am learning so much from this site and i wish all of you the power to fight and succeed!
