I'm glad to hear that you can continue to eat somewhat normally. Hopefully none of the "certain foods" are any of your favourites. :-)
I went through a stem cell transplant last fall and I went through some crazy food reactions. Food that I loved, I couldn’t tolerate mostly. It started with the chemo before the SCT. I am happy to report that after about 4-6 months post transplant that I started to return to relative dietary normalcy.
Feel free to message me if I can be of any help...
@KenD Thanks i did feel like it at the start but reading stuff on here changed it all. I don't feel so lost anymore.:) For me it all started a year post transplant and was wondering if it will ever come back, and reading your post gave me some hope that it could come back one day. Thank you very much.
@LucyK I did talk to my team about it and since I figured things out by myself how to cope with it and what substitute some food, they never gave me the appointment they wanted me to have..and i gained back the weight that I've had lost.. all in all im doing ok considering I can't eat most of the foods i loved - Im a BIG food lover - bummer -.
@Gnomeuniverse I'm not taking any medication other than blexston - Allergy pills - cuz i now have so many but mostly from environmental and I have 2 big dogs soo lots of allergens in the house haha.. But the intolerance that I do have they make my stomach turn first bite I take. so It doesn't get to the point that I get diarrhea, unless I eat to much fat or greasy foods.
Thank you to all 3 of you for the information.
Hopeful that it will come back one day !
Hi Lucy K I didn’t have SCT but I sometimes cannot eat food raw especially salad. I don’t have allergies. i have ti gave up p on salads, I cook mostly my veggies, I can eat cucumbers.
to change the topic, I’m getting forgetful and word finding, not sure if it’s late effects of chemo.
