reading on this and other forums what everyone says, I wonder why women in chemo aren't in low fibre diet like I was? I don't think I've seen a handful of women who mentioned it.
reason behind this diet is that digestive system is pretty much destroyed by chemo and fibre can't pass and create blockage which can be lethal.
for example, I just read Lorraine talking about prunes. God forbid if I mentioned even prune juice to my oncologist or onc nurse!!! it's one of the worst things you can eat, apparently. no peals, no "healthy" stuff at all. pasta, rice, chicken and fish was my diet for best part of last year. and laxatives.
even after chemo my digestive system changed a lot. I am intolerant to apples and peaches and a lot of other stuff now, including lactose that give me wind. so chemo changes al in ways we can't see.
has anyone talked to you about diet during or after chemo?
