Fasting prior to chemo days

Hi I have just read an article regarding fasting prior and after chemo and its effects on reducing the bad effects on side effects that occur to good cells causing peripheal neuropathy ,has any one got any thoughts on this apart from checking its appropriateness with your oncologist first ?The article was an American suggestion and research is incomplete so far ,but the people that do it say they generally feel better once fast period over not so much fatigue etc . Just thought it might be worth a try if l could fast that long.

Hello Diane

I will check this out with some of our Nursing and oncology colleagues and see if we can gather any information about this,
