Are you having the chemo before your surgery?
I bought a thermometer, something for constipation and something for diarhhea(sp?) ginger drops, and ginger ale.
The ginger didn't work for me.
I drank lots of water and ate what I could. I would sometimes crave foods that I don't even eat now.
The onc's office will prescribe anti nausea meds. Take them even if you don't think you need them because you don't want to get to the nausea.
The only other things I would say to add to the shopping list would be foods your family can make for themselves when you don't feel like getting off the couch or chair.
Good luck. Keep us posted.
