An oncologist at CTCA told me that it takes about 24 hours for the actual chemo to process out of my system, although the EFFECTS linger on for weeks.

Does that mean that the drugs are completely metabolized, and I get to eat stuff that interferes with the liver processing after 2-3 days??? Just a general question, Edge.

And I had a pointed discussion with the nutritionist--a really sharp lady--about cooking or small quantaties being OK for prohibited foods. She is going to research the question (I was VERY firm with my position which was actually YOUR position) and get back to me.

You sure come up with interesting questions!

Well, thank you, Fearless Leader!  "Twas the onc in the hospital Saturday am who gave me this idea.  He says that the EFFECTS of the chemo linger on, but the chemo itself processes out of your system in about 24 hours.  That SHOULD mean that I won't interfere with the drug's metabolism after a couple of days.  I'm waiting to hear.  For the Sutent, I was shot down because I took it every day.  But A&T is only 3 hours every three weeks.
