Could you please send me some information on Chemotherapy & Diet? I believe that you have to have a special diet.  
Thank you

Chemotherapy does have an effect on a patients dietary intake. Someof the drugs given during the course of treatment can have the sideeffects of nausea, constipation, vomiting and diarrhea. For an overview of the side effects of chemotherapy and some guidelines on how tocombat these using dietary measures, please see the following document entitled Chemotherapy for Patients: Introductory Information.

Thank you for your interest in OncoLink
