  • Have read somewhere that the use of omeprazole can cause macrocytosis.
    Is this a possibility?

  • Altho my doctor is an excellent surgeon, he does not want to discuss food interactions with the chemotherapy drugs ... so I am doing it myself. I already know to not eat citrus fruits or drink green tea during the 4.5 months of chemo but what else should I avoid eating?
