PCV Chemotherapy advice

My son has just started his first course of PCV and is asking for advice regarding alcohol. He is aware that it is a no go during treatment, but as there is a 6 week duration during courses and that his second course will not star until 27th December would he be OK to have something particularly during the Christmas period. Any advice from anyone who has been on PCV would be appreciated.

Hi Walloons2 welcome to the forum and I am so sorry to hear the news about your son.

Im wondering if your query is one that may best be answered by a medical professional and I wondered if you might like to post this into the Ask a Nurse section of the site as they may be better able to answer you with some certainty re this.

Sending  very best wishes meantime. xxxx
