During and after chemotherapy your senses may feel like they have gone haywire. Taste changes are a very common side effect of chemotherapy. Your sense of smell might also change, and you might become overly sensitive to fragrances. You might get chills frequently or constantly feel cold. Your mouth may develop sores and feel very dry. You may feel nauseous. In this blog post we suggest a variety of products to create a "Chemo Goody Bag" - items to take with you to treatment - to reduce these uncomfortable physical side effects.
The suggestions offered in the blog post include items to improve physical well being such as body temperature, and how to reduce the side effects you may experience ranging from oral care to skin care and nausea. We also have suggestions for mental, spiritual and emotional wellness.
The recommendations in this blog piece can help friends and relatives select chemotherapy gifts. If you are a patient, give yourself permission to create a wish list or put together a self-gift. Your body will thank you.
