    • LilyMir, I was on high-dose steroids for many, many months. Two other friends, not lung cancer folks, also were taking them. Our joke was that manufacturers should forget listing calorie and nutrient counts for single servings, just list them for an entire bag/package. So, a simple answer is, yes, steroids can increase your appetite.  But, you’ve also been miserable for so long that, in small part, you may also just be hungry.  The constipation is something you should talk to your oncologist about. Each one seems to like a particular approach. And it’s important to get this taken care of so you can be as comfortable as possible! (My go-to constipation fighter is simple: prunes.)   Hang in,  Karen
    • FWIW, I’m a carbo-taxol grrrl and never lost any hair. Like the good patient I (sometimes) try to be, I filled Rx for a drawerful of anti-nausea meds. Nurses told me the order in which to use them, and they said to absolutely take them at the first sign of discomfort. So I did. I wish you much luck. 
    • Are you a patient with SCLC?  We are working with the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) to help develop education and other information for clinicians and patients with SCLC. If you are a United States resident 21 years of age or older, we would like to hear your perspective on the challenges you face and educational needs you may have.  For your time in completing a 10 to 15-minute online survey, we are offering a $15 Amazon.com gift card. Additionally, if you would prefer not to leave contact information (name and email) you can still complete the survey and request that your $15 be provided to a lung cancer advocacy group or charity. Whether you choose the gift card or the donation, your responses will never be linked to you in any way. All data will be reported in aggregate and be used directly to develop educational programs.  For more information, please follow the link:  https://bit.ly/3jXYb5Z
