I've just had my final oxyplatin dose, and now on my final cycle of capecitabine tablets following on from bowel cancer surgery in Feb.  I feel that the chemotherapy has destroyed my natural gut flora, its making me anaemic and made my hair thin.  I asked the specialists if I would be provided with advice on how to rebuild my body's resources following chemotherapy but they don't provide anything.  I wondered if anyone on the forum can offer some advice, or if your body just naturally rebuilds itself with time and a varied diet?  Thanks.
