I finally had my first day of Chemotherapy. All I can tell you is I had to pee every half hour. I’m just really glad that my son and daughter told me to start taking Protandim as it has really been helping me. I take one a day and my energy is so much better and my pain in my abdomen is minimal now. I can really tell the difference now that I have taken it over a month. I think everyone should take it. What I like to do is take two tumeric with my Protandim to make it stronger. This is just what I do. Note, if you take tumeric, make sure it says on the bottle – 95% Curcumin.
When you have your chemotherapy I was in a room that overlooked the hillside and gardens. It had a bed and was very comfortable. My port made it easy to get my medication. I had a blood panel drawn first and found out I am getting more anemic each time it is checked. I may need to start special medication or even get blood in the near future. Then I had pre chemo medication and then 2 types of chemotherapy medication. It took 4 and a half hours today. My nurse told me to drink at least 8 glasses of fluids after chemotherapy so it flushes your system out. If you do not drink enough it sits too long in your liver and is too toxic. The fluids must not have any caffeine in them. Speaking of fluids, I have to pee again.
