Things to drink after chemotherapy? ugh… [archive] – her2 support group forums

I had been wondering what the majority of you drink after chemotherapy? Lengthy before my nightmare of bc…I had been a large water drinker. You could not catch me anywhere with no bottle water. I do not like soda’s to talk of…along with other then that teas are the only real other factor I’m able to drink.

Consider chemotherapy…I had been told to consume LOTS or water as Home theater system . all were. I figured to myself "Not a problem…I really like water.". Well…that altered rapidly enough after almost my first chemotherapy. Water sampled TERRIBLE! I am talking about BAD.

It requires EVERYTHING I’ve and more to Pressure myself to consume water following a full cycle of chemotherapy. (Usually through the second week after i am only doing the herceptin…water is okay.) However that first week following the taxotere, carb & herceptin…my mouth and taste is really all messed up.

I Understand I must drink something and that i have grown to be so concerned which i finally broke lower and also got some Power Aid. The red and orange flavored. Now strange as that’s for me personally…it tastes GOOD. What I do not like is its filled with suger virtually.

But my thinking is…any fluid in your body is much better then NO fluid. (Right?) I actually do get Water lower..but simply a couple of sips. Its just gross.

Irrrve never requested my physician what she’d consider this? But no consuming a minumum of one bottle from the power Aid needs to be better then nothing?

I did not wish to become totally dyhdrated. I’m just NOT use to consuming anything sweet…not to mention power aid. It will have potassium and stuff inside it perhaps don’t assume all bad. I’ve found once i obtain a bottle from it lower…I recieve a much better appetite back. Unsure why? I’ve lost 33 pounds since i have was DX…I hear people put on weight…I’ve LOST…I can not drink or eat much to talk of.

Inflict individuals experience the standard stuff you USE to consume before you decide to began chemotherapy? Do you consider the ability aid are the best then nothing? Or must i Pressure myself to obtain more water lower rather I love it or otherwise? Exactly what do everyone all drink? Shall We Be Held the only person with this particular problem?
