Hi Jules, we are all so very different, aren't we? The new wonder drug Akyzneo was hopeless for me and affected my kidneys. I reverted back to Emend which I wasn't sick on at all. You shouldn't be sick, and as this is a continuing problem I would definitely tell your unit. I took my anti nausea meds regularly, same with pain meds. It's no use taking them when you feel sick. Keep on top of it all. I made Ginger bics before my treatment with great chunks of crystallised ginger in. I took a box of these to bed for nighttime sickness. I also had lots of cold water with ice. Kept a flask bedside too. Made my mouth feel fresh and got rid of the yucky feeling. I found some strong smelling foods made me feel sick, so on those days I kept to bland food. Also, anything crisp and crunchy helped. Like the biscuits, toast, apples, nuts. My hubby bought in loads of different mints, plus liquorice for when I was constipated. This damn disease just keeps on giving! Unfortunately I don't think milk based products, including goat, is particularly wonderful when dealing with nausea. I know I never felt like having a milky drink, or yogurt etc when I was having chemo. I assumed my body was telling me something. Good luck. X
I have just finished 4 sessions of Docetaxol and am now on FEC. I am finding the side-effects of FEC quite hard to deal with. The nausea is not waning much and I am going to the bathroom frequently. I am being a good patient and taking the anti-nausea medication I just wondered what else I can do to help my stomach issues. I drink peppermint tea, eat goat's yoghurt and have eliminated coffee from my diet, but I have been sick with nausea for 5 days now and it is getting exhausting. Please let me know if you found anything that helped.
