I begin FCR on Tuesday 19th May. I've had lots of helpful advice from the hospital, such as the need to drink 2-3 litres of water a day prior to and during the treatment, but just wanted to know if anyone has any additional advice on preparing for FCR both physically and emotionally. Despite recently being in hospital with streptococcal pneumonia, I've made a good recovery and feel fine. I'm drinking green tea every day, meditating and getting some light exercise. Are there things that I can be doing over the next 10 days that will make life easier once the chemo begins? There seems to be a huge number of pills to take, and it's hard to imagine how my body will react to so much toxicity.
