Learning About Breast Cancer
While I was in chemo EVERYTHING tasted bad! Apples tasted like rubber. I couldn’t eat anything spicy or too salty. I never knew what I was going to be able to eat. Even my regularly favored foods were weird. What I ate most was very rare meat (and my doctor said we do feel a little like vampires seeking for the blood because is rich in iron) and grapefruits.
All the mouth sores and the metallic flavor we have in the mouth during the whole chemo, plus the nausea, really changes the flavors. And we act like pregnant women - I LOVE coffee, but during chemo I couldn’t even smell it.
