Regarding to the chemotherapy protocol, this day is the same as the previous day.
I’m honestly quite surprised I haven’t felt any side effects yet, in fact, I feel better than ever! Probably because of the supportive drugs, but heck I’ll take it!
Since there is not much to tell about the chemo itself, let me show you where the blog-magic happens instead.
Nutrition during chemo is pretty much the usual balanced diet they already serve at the hospital. But they have started giving you some shakes to make sure you get some essential nutrients. Some people lose appetite during chemo so it’s a good alternative just to get something into your body.
