Fingers Crossed

It's 1:20 AM and I just took an anti-nausea pill. I am clear how very fortunate I have been to be without the nausea side effect up until this point. I took anit-nausea pills shortly following my last round of chemo, but that was only after I felt the slightest nausea sensation in my stomach.

This time I am actually feeling nauseas. Man-oh-man, I am sure I am not alone when I say this is one side effect I want absolutely nothing to do with. My stomach feels nauseas and my face is tingling a bit and feeling hot. As long as my mouth doesn't start watering [fingers crossed] I think I should be okay...


  1. Bert,

    IV hydration might help alleviate the nausea... During my chemotherapy treatment, I had more nausea symptoms with every round. By round 4, my last round, I had hydration on the day of treatment and the 2 days following, and my nausea was very much alleviated.

    If you are still feeling nauseous, I would suggest calling your oncologist immediately to request hydration. I think you will feel much better.

    Take care, and hang in there!

    Thinking of you,

    Thank you for sharing that with me. I am going to the hospital in a little while to have teh 5-FU pump removed and I will talk to them about that while I am there.

    Have a great weekend!
