Preparing for chemotherapy isn’t going to eliminate all possible side effects, but it is going to make the process easier. After all, your body is about to undergo an intense set of treatments, and maintaining your strength will be a critical part of achieving health. Discover how you can prepare your mind and body for chemotherapy with these tips.

Ask Questions

Whether it’s your first or third time experiencing chemotherapy, asking questions is always important. By educating yourself ahead of time, you will become better prepared. Don’t be afraid to ask your doctor as many questions as you would like. Consult friends or peers who have had chemotherapy, and read literature pertaining to the specific treatment you will have.

Eat Healthy

Research has proven that maintaining a healthy diet can help reduce the negative effects of cancer and chemotherapy treatment. Avoid foods that may make your side effects, such as nausea worse. It’s important to stay hydrated, so plan to drink a lot of fluids during and leading up to chemotherapy.

Hair Loss

If hair loss is one of the listed side effects of your specific chemotherapy, prepare yourself for the possibility. Some women prefer to flaunt their baldness proudly, while some prefer to wear wigs or decorate headwear. Before chemotherapy begins, schedule your consultation with a professional to choose a wig that is right for you.
