"What types of foods help you with chemo side effects?"

Mine is breakfast, every day I start out with a bowel of oatmeal with a pint of blueberries, a heaping teaspoon of Cinnamon and a cup of Soy Milk. I think this is what helps me stay regular and I don’t mean a regular guy.

My dad had severe nausea. Meds just didn't help most of the time and it was very difficult on him during 2 of his 3 different chemotherapy treatments.

What helped his nausea were cold fruits like canteloupe, melons, peeled grapes, pears...for some reason the cold and the natural sweet flavors helped rid the metallic taste in his mouth and helped with the nausea. Also, a cold wash rag on his head while he ate the cold fruits helped too.
