Just diagnosed. Only 2 chemo sessions thus far. Any words of wisdom, having been thru already or still in your journey that you may want to share?

      @ElginO i too didnt like water alone. I mix 75% water with gatorade, propel, and sugarfree powdered drink mixes. i do love sugar and this is a good compromise for me. The Gatorade give flavor and a few electrolytes that will be helpful. The Propel might be more for me as the sodium helps my POTS. The powdered sugarfree packs a lot of flavor and i only use a vey tiny anount to change the flavor around a bit. Maybe more psychological, i get to control something each morning.

      If you have bone pain after chemo generic Claritin will help tremendously if not stop the pain all together. Double dose it the day before, the day of, and the day after your chemo treatment. Good Luck. Prayers to you💜

        @Kckellykc . thank you. what types of beverages would you suggest? Seems like everything contains sugar. Plain water is so blah. Any suggestions? Most liquids have a different taste now so I have to remember that I really do like what I'm drinking! Lol.
