cannot lose weight after chemotherapy|health gym Maintaining a healthy body weight is essential when undergoing treatment for cancer. Whether you start treatment with a low body weight or develop a low body weight as a result of your treatment, getting your weight back to a healthy level is important. Low body weight can decrease the effectiveness of your treatment. Unfortunately, cancer treatments often make it difficult to eat, but there are ways to get around this to achieve a healthy weight. 1 Eat small meals regularly. Low appetite is a common side effect of cancer treatments. Oftentimes, you may lack the appetite to finish a full meal all at once. You can try to combat this by eating smaller meals throughout the day. Eat about every 2 hours. Have small meals as well as snacks. Ask your doctor for a reasonable calorie count and try to break that down throughout your daily meals. Do not wait until you feel hungry as you might not notice hunger pains if you're feeling nauseous from treatment.[1] Try to prepare meals and snacks ahead of time or have someone do so for you. It can be hard to make something to eat if you're not feeling well. 2 Opt to increase calories when possible. Whenever you have the chance, add more calories to a dish. There are many ways to add a few hundred more calories to an existing meal: Use whole milk and cream over skim or fat free varieties. Use milk instead of water for canned soup and packet sauces.

How to Prepare for Breast Cancer Chemotherapy|first chemotherapy treatment Chemotherapy is a treatment option for breast cancer. However, it comes with a multitude of side effects that take a toll on both your physical and mental health. Preparing for chemotherapy for breast cancer can help reduce your stress level by helping you understand what to expect. 1 Learn as much as you can about your particular treatment plan and how chemotherapy may affect your body. Ask about how long treatments will take and how many chemotherapy sessions the doctor has prescribed. Discuss in detail with your doctor the particular drug cocktail that will be part of your chemotherapy. Do some research. Remember that you have the final say in what goes in your body for treatment. Find a breast cancer support group so that you can share some of your concerns and learn from others. While knowledge can help ease some anxiety, remember that not everyone will be affected in the same way. 2 Get pre-chemotherapy tests, such as X-rays and heart scans. You'll also need to decide how you want your chemo to be delivered: through a regular IV or a port. A port requires minor surgery prior to chemotherapy. 3 Focus on improving your overall health to reduce potential chemotherapy side effects. Get plenty of sleep overnight and rest often during the day if possible. Minimize stressful situations. Try meditation and yoga as relaxation techniques or take a bubble bath and listen to relaxing music. Deep breathing exercises can also help. Eat a balanced diet with plenty of vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Avoid infections by steering clear of people who are sick. Schedule an

How to Look Your Best While Undergoing Chemotherapy|best lotion for chemotherapy patients Many women undergoing chemotherapy may struggle to feel beautiful during treatments. Oftentimes, a patient may find her skin and lips drying out. She may feel gaunt or pale, and if she loses her hair, her confidence might drop. With a few extra steps, however, you can offset many of the beauty-related problems caused by chemotherapy. Moisturizing products help your skin to stay hydrated, cosmetics can give you a healthy glow, and hair coverings can keep you looking beautiful and feminine. 1 Cleanse your face with lukewarm water and a mild facial cleanser in the morning and evening. Avoid harsh soaps or soaps that do not wash off easily, since these products are more likely to dry your skin out faster. Apply the cleanser in upward strokes before rinsing.

How to Prevent Hair Loss After Chemotherapy|permanent hair loss from chemotheropy Chemotherapy is a drug treatment that kills fast growing cancer cells. Unfortunately, chemotherapy also kills normal fast growing cells such as those that contribute to hair growth. Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy can lose hair all over their bodies, but it is often most distressing for patients to lose the hair on their heads. Preventing hair loss after chemotherapy was impossible in the past, but an innovative technique called scalp hypothermia has led to impressive results for cancer patients who are fearful of losing their hair to chemotherapy. Scalp hypothermia involves wearing a tight fitting cap made of silicon gel or rubber that is cooled to -22 degrees F (-30 degrees C) and used during chemotherapy treatments. The temperature of the cap causes the blood vessels in the scalp to constrict reducing the amount of chemotherapy drugs that can attack the hair follicles. The following are steps cancer patients on chemotherapy can take to prevent hair loss using scalp hypothermia
