Hi @JoanieC and welcome to the forum family.
With regards to your question I would say that’s one for you medical team. I’ve copied in @GemmaBloodCancerUK and @TanyaBloodCancerUK who may be able to offer some advice.
How are you doing? Had your treatment finished now? I look forward to hearing more about you :blush:

@Nichola75 is correct. Best take it from someone medically more knowledgeable. I think it may be different for everyone. Nobody gave me any such advice after my chemo or talked about diet and lifestyle at all, so I was left to find my own way but I hope you are able to speak to someone who may help.


Hello @JoanieC, thank you for posting and welcome to the Forum. I would advise to always check with you Haematology Doctor about any supplements post treatment as they are best placed to consider this alongside your blood counts and treatment history. I general, a well balanced diet with exercise (at your own pace) is recommended after treatment. We have some webpages that may be useful about life after treatment Blood cancer: after treatment | Blood Cancer UK with a living well section that gives good suggestions Living well with blood cancer | Blood Cancer UK
