Reading these posts brings back memories. I finished chemo in May, 2005. My food craving was fresh fruit. I suppose it could have been worse. I don't remember the nausea as being too bad, but I did not have much of an appetite, and could not gain weight. I remember the side effects with Oxal-warming my orange juice in the microwave. One time when chemo was postponed 3 weeks due to low blood counts, I had a nice iced coffee drink at Starbucks. When I told the chemo nurses, they didn't think it was too funny-they said "be careful with cold things!" Since chemo has ended it has been no problem gaining weight. Probably now the problem is too much weight. Most of my clothes don't fit. When you talk about your emotions, you will have ups and downs. Look at what you are going through, you have also temporarily lost some control over your life. Remember, there is life after chemo, and you will find you are stronger than you think.
