Fasting During Chemo (with an ostomy)?

Posted by pjebp @pjebp, Dec 18, 2021

Fasting During Chemo! I've done some reading on it so I know what it can do. Would you please share with me the details of what YOU did and how it worked for YOU?

I am especially interested in hearing from people who fasted during chemo with an ILEOSTOMY! I had my second chemo yesterday. First I received infused anti-nausea medication. Next I received steroids. On the second session I also received Avastin for one recently discovered biopsied liver metastasis. Then I received oxaliplatin for about 90 minutes, then a bolus of 5FU and then go home with a pump for 48 hours.

I am icing also. Other than being a little tired and groggy on and off in the days following my first session and a little bit of pain in my jaw on the first bite, I had no other side effects from the chemo. Thank you!

@pjebp you will notice that I have included this discussion in both the Colorectal Cancer Group as well as the LCHF Fasting Group so you can more simply manage one discussion and so that other members can just as easily find it and join you!

Where did you learn about this and what resources might you consider sharing for members who may want to learn more?
