When I was diagnosed, the first few things I asked was what I should or should not eat, all three doctors - the primary colorectal doc, the oncologist and the radiation oncologist all said NOTHING THAT WE CANNOT EAT. Phew !
Except during my capcitabine intake, oncologist advised not to take grapefruit as there have been research that says it doesn't work well with chemo drugs and that's about it. I can totally live with that !
I was also advised not to take too much fiber during my pelvic radiation due an irritated rectum but that was just temporary.
Maybe a thread on food intake could be created to discuss this further !
I have not gone through the intravenous chemo yet !
