Is it ok to drink a glass of wine with dinner? l'm in my 12th day of 1st cycle and feel ok and could murder a glass of wine!!
My chemo nurse said alcohol's fine if you fancy it! In Dr. Priestman's book "Coping with chemotherapy" he says that except in rare circumstances, having a glass of wine or a pint of beer will not do any harm at all.
So enjoy yourself!
They say, 'everything in moderation'... so go for it! Why deprive yourself?
I was told by my chemo nurse not to have alcohol for about 48 hrs afternchemo then it was fine to have the odd drink xx
Many thanks for your replies, l enjoyed my 2 glasses of wine very much and felt fine! It did help as l had lost my hair that day and shaved it that night so l feel l deserved the luxury x
