What to bring on your treatment day
We strive to make you comfortable in our infusion suite with staff who personalize your care, a quiet and relaxed environment, and new, heated massage chairs for use during your treatment. Since treatments take a while to administer, here are a few things we recommend you bring to help pass the time.
- Food or snacks.
- Entertainment such as books, tablets with headphones, knitting items, writing material.
- Blanket and a pillow (or use one of our complimentary blankets!).
- Family! They’re welcome to sit with you, but please be mindful of other patients in the infusion suite.
- Hard candy, lip balm, and water. Some patients get dry mouth and find this helps.
Chemotherapy schedules are different for many patients. We try to give you a complete schedule for the treatment regimen. It is important you receive your chemo at the proper intervals. If you wish to cancel, please give us 24 to 48 hours notice.
- Chemo may affect your blood, so we will monitor your counts closely and check other lab work as needed.
- Your doctor will see you prior to each treatment to review lab results, discuss your response to treatment and answer any questions.
Chemotherapy can cause nausea and vomiting at times. Here are some tips to reduce these instances.
- Eat small meals throughout the day versus three large meals.
- Reduce strong smells and taste by serving food at room temperature.
- Eat and drink slowly.
- Avoid foods that are overly sweet, salty, spicy, or fatty.
- If you’re having nausea, suck on ice or mints.
- Avoid cooking odors, smoke, or perfume.
- Some chemo can cause a metallic taste. In that case use plastic utensils.
Chemotherapy can cause mouth sores. Mouth care is extremely important during treatment.
- Use a soft toothbrush
- Suck on ice chips.
- Suck on hard candy when needed.
- Moisten foods as much as possible.
- Avoid acidic foods.
- Avoid salty and spicy foods.
- Use a straw if needed
- If no relief is reached, call our nurses for Magic Mouth Wash
Chemotherapy can cause neutropenia, a low level of white blood cells in the blood. The lower the level, the higher the risk for infection.
Try to avoid crowded places or individuals that may be sick when white blood cell counts are low. If any of the following occurs, please notify us quickly.
- A temperature higher than 100.4 degrees.
- Shaking chills.
- Changes in urinary frequency, color, or smell.
- Changes in breathing, sore throat, sputum or constant cough.
- Changes in skin conditions such as redness, inflammation, or pain.
