Your hospital will probably supply food but as you’re there for a while but it’s a good idea to pack yourself a snack pack for chemotherapy treatment day. You may get hungry during treatment so bring a variety of snacks that you enjoy snacking on. Some patients advise not taking your favourite ones as you might end up being put off them. If you travel a long way or have to spend time having or waiting for treatment you won’t have to stop to get food or rely on the food at the hospital or treatment centre.
Food may change over the period of treatments as your taste buds change. You may also develop an aversion to hospital food and not want anything provided. Mouth ulcers can become a eating problem so then soft snacks are advised.
Don’t forget your water bottle! Headaches are common during chemotherapy treatment and you don’t want to become dehydrated. Drinking water or juice will keep you hydrated. It’ll also help flush those nasty chemo toxins out of your bloodstream faster.
