If it helps I get my chemo on tues mornings,for the last 3 yrs. Just about like you could set your watch to it,Thurs afternoon through sat morning. It's as if the chemo is comming out of my system,via the intestines.I will have dirrea,so I have gotten into the habbit of useing more bran in my diet,you need something to soak up the strong acids and keep it from irretating your intestines.As long as you are on a chemo that stops cell reproduction,quit the bad fats,Fried foods are the worst possible thing you can do.The best thing you can do for yourself is get a good nutritional diet that's good for your liver.The more you can counteract the acids the better.You need vitamins&minerals.The best way I have found to battle the acids that take advantage of time off from chemo is a program through Fred.You can probably do it on diet mostly but vitamins in most cases are going to get into your system more quickly.You are sure of a better ballance of the benefical vitamins that may lack in your diet.If your system isn't strong enough to fight and heal when it not fighting the chemo,it's an accumulative affect leading to spread of the disease and infection.Acid is the worst part of this battle,thats where Freds program is so effective.If you can't get the acid under control you will continue to go the wrong way.The four most popular causes are,intestons,ascites,bloodclots and internal bleeding,not sure of the order.I doubt anyone knows forsure.If you can get your liver to a healthy state means a great deal.These are my observations,use your own research before you jump into anything.Peace
