Chemotherapy can cause nausea so you should take less spicy food. Also you should avoid food which can cause infection. Take freshly prepared food. Avoid fast food at unhygienic place. Take food rich in proteins. Take high calories and low residue diet as there may be loss of appetite.

What is the symptoms of cancer and what I should I do if fiver for over last two days.

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
A cancer may also cause symptoms like fever, extreme tiredness (fatigue), or weight loss. This may be because cancer cells use up much of the body’s energy supply, or they may release substances that change the way the body makes energy from food. Cancer can also cause the immune system to react in ways that produce these signs and symptoms. tab dolo sos when temp. Is high, and get few test done like cbc, complete urine exam. Platelet count, mp slide for malaria and widal test. Back with report. Thank you

Hi Sakina, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, contextually, I would advise that you consult your oncologist first in this regard, and proceed as per his recommendations. Should it require, he may advise anal suppository/ enema, as would deem appropriate post clinical evaluation, to clear off the hard stool first. Subsequently, streamlining your diet/ lifestyle may help get over this issue on the long run. You can include ripe papaya, apple, figs, raisins, dates, prunes etc all in your daily diet. Also, fibrous diet apart, its important that you stay well hydrated too. An active lifestyle with yoga, exercise, massage, relaxation, de-stressing etc all can be of help in this condition. You may take any natural laxative/ lactulose solution for the next few days/ weeks subject to your oncologist's/ physician's concurrence. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best.
