Hi all just a quick question am I allowed an odd bottle of beer if I’m having radiotherapy or is it advised to drink no alcohol whatsoever ? I can take or leave alcohol at any time but do enjoy a bottle of beer now and again , I have just started my treatment so was wondering if this was a big no no ?

Hi Tommo,

if you enjoy a beer and your team say it’s ok, then why not?

hope all goes well

No one mentioned alcohol to me at all before I started my radiotherapy. The focus was more on the fact I would go through a phase with issues swallowing (due to where was being treated). As such the thing I was told to avoid was bread, no mention of alcohol of any sort.
