Allow Cancer Sufferers To Eat Carelessly After Chemotherapy?
I have a neighbor with stage 2 brain cancer, we are quite close and he often shares his story about cancer from treatment to chemotherapy,
Hello Ade, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Basically the nutrition obtained from food is one of the important components in maintaining one's condition while undergoing the process of chemotherapy, due to the many side effects that can occur during a person undergoing the chemotherapy process.
According to the American Cancer Society, in general there is no specific food that is said to be avoided or challenged while a person is undergoing a chemotherapy program, even certain types of diets that are still being investigated may help in the treatment of certain types of tumors. Although there are no specific restrictions, there are some eating patterns that you can try to apply to your neighbors during the chemotherapy program, such as:
Eat easily digestible foods (for example yogurt, cheese, boiled eggs, cereals, bread, soups, etc.) before undergoing a chemotherapy program
During the chemotherapy program, bring snacks in small portions and easy to eat (for example fruits, juices, yogurt, biscuits, etc.) and water (avoid carrying fizzy drinks and alcohol)
After the chemotherapy program:
Eat small portions but quite often
Avoid foods that are high in fat (because it can trigger nausea)
Increase consumption of water
Take medications as prescribed by the doctor
Although what is said in the film is indeed quite true, but the film is not the right source for determining which eating patterns and foods should be consumed by your neighbors, encourage your neighbors to consult further with a nutrition specialist to help determine what foods which may and may not be consumed by your neighbors, because basically every condition that exists in a person's body affects the types of food that must be avoided and not avoided.
I hope this helps.
