Everything tasted of salt yesterday and I guessed it was a side effect of chemo but thought I would run it past Cathy anyway. She looked up the side effects of my chemo, confirmed that a "change in taste" was, indeed, one of the side effects and sent me a link to follow.
With mounting horror I read that, should I be really unlucky, the major side effects could make me bald, make my nails fall out and make my hands and feet go bright red. But it would be OK, because the diarrhoea would mean I would never get out of the bathroom so no one would notice.
I stopped reading the leaflet and we went back to chatting about other stuff.
We all need a tame Doctor of Bio-Chemistry in this situation. Do you think we could prescribe her on the National Health?
