Sounds like you are getting good advice and additional help/alternatives to make you feel OK this 2nd time
My hubby reacted really bad to the steroids (as I mentioned before) and that made it impossible for him to exercise (very tired and had to be close to a bathroom) but when the hyperglycemia was taken care of, he could start to excercise and I'm sure the exercise, daily walks with our dog, helped my hubby get through the chemo without too much problems. (He did get peripheral neuropathy though and they stopped the 'Oxi' for his last 3 chemos.) Many have mentioned the importance of exercise, as a good 'antidote' while on chemo and also after. I do believe that is true!
Hubby had no problem with apetite/nausia when on chemo but If You should experience 'no apetite' - and in need of protein so not to lose muscles - I can share that I was advised by a pharmacy in Bordeaux (where my hubby is treated) that many Doctors there obviosly recommend a product called " Nutricia Fortimel" after surgeries. http://www.nutricia.fr/nos-produits/nut ... ein-200ml/
It was for sure Not my husband's favorit food... (some variants did go down better then others though) - but he did add this extra protein while he was healing from surgeries, he knew it was important.
Thinking of You and hoping #2 will be easy for you !
