Your body may be telling you that it needs protein, which helps to rebuild damaged body
tissue. Protein can be found in fish, lean meat, eggs, soy, beans...you can even try peanut butter on toast!
And exercise when you can - walk for a half hour!
Did you know?
If you have a metallic taste in your mouth after chemo - eat a pickle! it will change
the chemistry in your taste buds and you will get your appetite back!
If you take radiation treatments they may tell you not to wear deodorant. You can
in fact wear deodorant, as long as it does not have metallic flakes in it. Look for "the rock"
crystal deodorant in health stores.
If you are getting a mammogram - stop drinking caffeine 24 hours before. Caffeine
makes your breast more sensitive and those "slam-ograms" can be a tight squeeze.
Not sure about insurance?
Aflac has supplemental policies that your sisters and children may consider since cancer can run in the family.
I do not endorse anything but I believe it is worth knowing about.
