Alcohol

Chemotherapy and other medications can greatly stress and damage the liver. Following bone marrow transplant, your liver may be sensitive and unable to fully function.

All alcoholic beverages should be avoided during treatment and for at least 3 months following transplant. This period may be longer for some patients. Check with your doctor before having beer, wine and other alcoholic beverages.
