Side Effects - ttisme

Side Effects Associated with Colorectal (Colon) Cancer. Posted on February 28, 2012 View this journey (3 Experiences)

Constipation after treatment- eat lots of veggies and drink lots of water.
dry mouth and lips- I use biotene toothpaste and rinse
dry cracked lips-vaseline
hands and feet neuropathy- johnson's baby oil gel!
tired- fresh sheet and a cold pillow!

My hair thinned out during first 4 treatments, i used Aveeno baby wash/shampoo. I am now back to using my old favorite shampoos.

Cold feet/toes- after trying every slipper at Walmart, i orderd a pair of
wicked shearling slippers from LL Bean. They are warm, cozy to you toes and have a hard enough sole that I wear mine all the time, inside and out!
