I cant drink it on these treatments it just taste strange to me. My mom loved coffee but when she went on chemo she couldnt drink it.
when I started treatment they emphasized that any more than a couple cups of coffee was bad for you. Not sure if it is a medicine interaction or what.
Since starting tx I have noticed that coffee does not taste right to me anymore.
I haven't even started any testing yet - the only thing that I've done is taken a blood test and was given the results - now I'm trying to get into a Hepatologist to start the Liver testing - maybe the decline in coffee is just from my liver being sick.
Haven't noticed a decline in my taste for my morning cup of coffee, nope none at all I still look forward to the taste and for the "pick me up" I get out of it. Something I've done differently in the past years is by switching to an organic coffee bean, like I have with all the rest that I buy. I figure the less the toxic waste I eat or drink will make my liver a bit happier by using organic and keeping up the daily fluid intake and drinking mostly water. The other thing I do differently with coffee is that I don't add any dairy, sugar or any type of sweetner since I have kinda lost my taste for those things and because their not that great for a diseased liver anyway. Now I just add some unsweetened soy milk and love the taste!
I added some info about a great hepatologist onto your post from yesterday, hope this helps in your search to getting a good consult from a really good hep doc. ;)
since my tx started and has just ended ( 56 weeks ) i have lost my taste for coffee too. it was causing stomach problems at the beginning of tx along with side effects of meds i just gave it up. and yes a bad taste helped me to quit as well. now if i could have the same thing happen with cigs i could eliminate my last vice.
happy holidays to you. :O)
I cant drink coffee either. I have had Dunkin Donuts iced coffee for the past 5 years every single morning.
Now I cant look at it..YUKKY POO!!
It didn't bother me at all.........I am a serious coffee addict it would appear, it would take a lot more than chemo to get me off of that drug! ;)
