Can I Have a Glass of Champagne On New Year's Eve If I am Going Through Chemo?

By December 31, 2012

Follow me on:

A glass of champagne to ring in the New Year is global tradition and one that many cancer patients wonder if they can still take part in. While one glass of champagne shouldn't cause harm in cancer patients, it's really best to ask a doctor before having any bubbly. Chemotherapy drugs and other medications prescribed during cancer treatment can interact with alcohol, causing an adverse or toxic reaction. It really depends on the medications you are taking. Remember to always get the "go ahead" from your oncologist before taking any medications or drinking/eating foods that may interact with your treatment meds.

New Year's Eve isn't the only time cancer patients wonder about alcohol consumption during cancer treatment. Patients often ask if they can drink alcohol as they go through treatment, but the answer isn't the same for all patients. There are a lot of factors involved in whether your doctor may or may not give permission to drink alcohol regularly during treatment.

Vin Di – Carlo’s tactic consists of quite a few videos along with
recommendations and there is no doubt it is quite comprehensive along with well designed technique.
Maybe I will be too ideal, or too accomplished, or
too boring i always don’t think We’re. These methods of attraction are certainly not rational.
