    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    My first chemo treatment I had bowel side effects that were not so pleasant along with my tongue feeling like it was sitting on needle teeth making eating impossible unless soft food, but my second treatment has only left me with same tongue issues and sensitivity in my fingertips to touch and hot water.

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
