Question:

I am recovering from breast cancer surgery and preparing for radiation. Nurses are telling me not to fast because I need to keep my immune system strong and still need protein to heal. Should I fast?

Answer:

You should ask the doctor who knows your case history well and abide by his decision. Wishing you a Refuah Shlema.
