      I found that avoiding spicy and overly fatty foods helped reduce my stomach discomfort. Everyone's different, but bland, easy-to-digest foods worked best for me.

      I had mouth sores :( so soft, cool foods like yogurt and smoothies can be soothing. Avoiding acidic or very hot foods can also help.

      During my chemotherapy, I was advised to eat small, frequent meals throughout the day to help with nausea. Also, staying hydrated was really important."

"Eat well the days before but not the day of. Frozen strawberries in sugar were suggested as they always tasted good and easy for stomach to process. Also, it was recommended to eat small meals or snacks every 3-4 hours, and drink small amounts of water. When you're without symptoms, eat whole grain and a variety of fruits and vegetables. Some people also suggest eliminating gluten and lactose if possible."
