Helpful items

Through my time in treatments and hospitals, I have a few things that have been helpful.

  1. Noise canceling headphones. I use them all the time and listen to things like sleep music and such. They are so helpful to block out the beeping if IVs, hospital noise, and even children running in the house. I take mine to chemo and the hospital.

  2. When I had my ostomy, I carried a small cross body bag with supplies in it.

  3. Have your oncology team stock you with Rxs including Zofran ODT, compazine, diflucan for thrush, magic mouthwash, dexamethasone for those times where GI stress and reactions to chemo can get out of hand. Also sleep can be a bear too.
