Cancer and Oncology Q 91

A client taking a chemotherapeutic agent understands the effects of therapy by stating:
    A. “I should stay in my room all the time.”
    B. “I will avoid eating hot and spicy foods.”
    C. “I should limit my fluid intake to about 500 ml per day.”
    D. “I should notify the physician immediately if a urine color change is observed.”

Correct Answer: B. “I will avoid eating hot and spicy foods.”

Option B: The client should prevent hot and spicy food because of the stomatitis side effect. Spicy foods can further irritate the lining of the mouth causing more ulcers.

Option A: The client should avoid people with infection but should not isolate himself in his room all the time.
Option C: Fluid intake should be increased to help flush out the medication and replace lost fluids caused by the other side effects of chemotherapy such as nausea and vomiting.
Option D: Urine color change is normal.
