Thanks Charles for sharing the above article. I found it very interesting to say the least.
When I was first diagnosed in November my husband put me on a Ketogenic diet. It really cuts the sugars/carbs out. I didn’t stay on it because it was just too hard to follow especially with they way chemo was making me feel… I hope to try it again once I’m off chemo.
Thanks Marion & Lainy !
Yes, it is Dr. Javle. I hope that’s a good thing?
Marion, thanks for the heads up on hot & cold & neuropathy. Unfortunately I know too much about neuropathy. I’ve been an RN since 98 & a wound care specialist since 2005. But, I’ve mostly dealt with diabetic neuropathy.
I think sometimes being a nurse isn’t so great in these situations…
My name is Dawn, I am 45 and was diagnosed with IHCC in November of 2017. I am on my last cycle of chemo. I have been seeing a local oncologist for the chemo and now have an appointment at MD Anderson April 18th to see what the next step is going to be.
I have a wonderful husband who is super supportive and 3 awesome boys! This has been the hardest thing by far I’ve ever had to deal with. Chemo was really hard at first. My hair fell out and I had tremendous pain the first several weeks. Now I’m just tired and starting to develop neuropathy in my feet and hands.
I’m am somewhat excited to meet the MD I have been assigned to at MD Anderson as Cholangiocarcinoma is his specialty.
