Overcoming Nausea

Some people have experienced nausea at one time or another. Treatment has a way of affecting us all very differently. How have you been able to settle the feeling of green?

Ginger ale was my go-to, and watching certain foods and spices on a treatment day.

  1. In the beginning Benadryl and anti-nausea medication, was hooked to me like an IV drip. Granted, I never had outpatient chemotherapy. I will say when I relapsed, I was able to tolerate the chemotherapy a little better than I did before…sort of, kind of. I didn’t get as sick and I was constantly drinking Sprite and eating crackers.

    1. Yeah something about the crackers and soda bubbly that helps to settle things for a bit.

  2. It wasn't so much the chemo that got me nausea. Both rounds that I went through chemo, I went through it like a champ. It was when I had bronchial pneumonia 3times, and pneutopedic pneumonia twice, all during my second round of chemo when I relapsed, is what tore me up. Each time, all I could keep down was orange juice and chicken broth. And then corona virus. Caught it while in the hospital during chemo. That was sooo horrible. Under the circumstances, doc wasn't sure if I was going to pull through that. He just kept pushing the antibiotics IV for 21 days. I don't EVER wanna go through that again. Let's just say a plastic garbage can got well used.

    1. Ugh! I'm happy to hear you're doing a little better. Best!

  3. Odansetron/Zofran works wonders for nausea. Its helped me tremendously!

    1. I believe I tried this as well, they didn't work too well for me though. I'm glad this has worked for you. 😀

  4. Sorry to hear that Yolanda, have you tried peppermint tea or chamomile tea? Sometimes that can help an upset stomach. Wishing you luck in finding something that helps <3

    1. I asked for anti-nausea drugs as well -- they worked is all i can say Dennis ( TEAM
