Acunpuncture and chemo
Hi everyone, thanks for great responses on this forum. I am starting acupuncture alongside my Folfox chemo programme, and was surprised to be told by an oncologist to only have this treatment the day before or the day after chemo -- which means only once every two weeks, whereas I would prefer weekly. Has anyone come across these kinds of restrictions? If they are about avoiding cross-infection I am happy to regard them as erring on the side of caution but ignorable, but if there is evidence they can cut across the effect of the chemo itself (surely not?) that's different. Cancer Research UK is relaxed and even encouraging, mentions noting about having to limit treatments. Thoughts/comparable experiences welcomed.
