I really thought I was going to breeze thru chemo...and for the most part I did, then my 4th and final treatment was on Friday, Sept 14 and by Sunday I had nausea and diarreha so bad and felt so weak that I couldn't hardly function! By tuesday I was so dehydrated I had to go back to the Dr's and have some IV fluids! I tried all kinds of remedies for nausea from RX to OTC, but I lost 5 lbs and could only think of eating chicken noodle soup! I had a really big pity party for myself and cried many mornings and on my way to work...good thing I don't have eyelashes!
Finally, this past monday, I began to get my taste back and the nausea went away, thanks to Rinitidine 150mg...I have started eating again...haven't had milk products in 2 weeks, but enjoyed yogurt yesterday.
It was quite a journey! My friend who is a Nurse Practioner said I may have had a bit of a viral thing going on...all I know is that I don't want to be that sick again!
