Topic: Is increased appetite a good sign during chemo?
We are currently awaiting the results for my mum's first post-chemo MRI, to see whether Gem/Cis is having any impact on the cancer.
My mum's appetite before chemo was pretty terrible and now she says that she's absolutely ravenous all of the time. I said to her that this probably has something to do with the steroids that she is taking, and wanting to eat is also a much better sign than not being hungry at all.
I'm just wondering, is increased appetite during chemo usually due to the steroids?
