I had a glass of wine here and there during chemo. I don't think life should stop being enjoyable just because your on chemo. If it takes the edge off then why not. My oncologist said it wouldn't hurt as long as it didn't make me feel worse and I didn't have more than a couple.

So Cheers! :D

I notice that en I drink it goes right through me. We had a great dinner, four courses paired with wine, still had to get up three times to empty bag. Such a bummer.
