prairiemommy- One of my biggest problems with chemo was the awful taste in my mouth and the nasty smell of my sweat/urine/body for a few days after treatment. I generally found that right after treatments, I'd have to stick with drinking strongly flavored juices (grape, cherry and blackberry were my go-tos) over water. Just drinking plain water made it worse.
Letitia-Best wishes with rads. It was nice to have the daily routine of radiation and the staff at my doctor's office was super nice, so it was nice to see them every day! Also, I had pretty bad radiation burns in my armpits and the only thing I found to help heal them was this: Tortuga Lotion
. It was recommended to me by another cancer survivor mama and I swear, it worked miracles! All the "normal" recommendations like Aquaphor and aloe just made the burns worse. Hopefully, you won't even have to deal with any burns, but if you do, I highly recommend the Tortuga lotion! (i have no affiliation with them, it just worked so well and I wish I'd known about it sooner!)
