Thank you, ashcon . Here is the handout below and it includes sweat as a body fluid.
My son is not able to wash dishes or do laundry and hygiene is like pulling teeth. I can manage to get him in the shower once a week but it’s a struggle. He is doing well with washing hands but never brushes teeth etc. I did get him to change his clothes everyday for the five days of chemo. I clean his apt. He is not able to do it himself. I now have him using disposable dishes because anything else does not work.
Yesterday was his first one day a week (30 mt) chemo. Last night he had a sore throat but it was better this morning and aft. He is feeling a little anxious which is not the norm for him so these are the only side effects so far. He has his skull MRI tomorrow . One more short chemo day next week then we start the 5 day week Again the week after.
VioletFlower Hmmmm, very interesting. I guess the inclusion of sweat as a bodily fluid makes sense.
I didn't go that far when I was doing chemo. Maybe the type of chemo makes a difference?
Perhaps this approach does make sense with your son if he is not as regularly diligent with personal hygiene as he could be. But this would be another strenuous task to add to the already strained task list of getting through this ordeal.
I have been reading your posts from afar and really appreciate all that you are sharing. I know it is helping others.
Well wishes for MRI tomorrow and for next rounds of chemo!
