Re: Just diagnosed

Hope you are feeling better now Theresa. You are entitled to have a bit of depression ...hopefully your GP has been able to help although meds will take a few weeks to kick in.

Re: First folfirinox experience

And perhaps stop the lentils which won't be helping with the wind! Lovely to hear your update, enjoy the rest of the weekend. I do agree with Veema, get it on prescription. They are only small yet pack a punch of calories. My hubby liked the banana flavour x
