    So I get dark circles under my eyes fairly easily, even when I get a fair amount of sleep (7-8 hours.) Any suggestions?:confused:

    Take a vitamin K supplement.

    Really?? I might have to try that. I'll ask the oncologist if I can do that. I've always had them somewhat but the chemo-induced anemia really makes them pronounced. Sometimes I look goth.

    Thanks for that advice!

    Ask him about a vitamin D3 supplement to help boost your immune system too!

    You mean, "her" :tongue:. I have to watch vitamins very carefully. Boosting too much of anything has to be avoided. Anti-oxidants and other immune boosters can inhibit radiation and chemotherapy because they can indiscriminately protect all cells, including the cancer cells. She's been adamant about clearing everything with her and tells me when it comes to vitamins that if she hasn't prescribed it then I probably shouldn't be on it. She's board certified in immunology, hematology, and oncology with two PhDs so when it comes to these things I listen to her. She has me on potassium, B1, B2, and magnesium supplements to counter the nerve damage I've experienced. I think it is getting better very, very, slowly.
