oh, I’m so sorry! I’ve also done 3 rounds, and they have been progressively harder on me. But you should not have to suffer horrible nausea, there are way too many meds available to treat that! Zofran, Ativan, phenergan, so many more options. Your doc should help find the right med or combination of meds to ease your distress.

Please call your oncologist right away- this is NOT normal with proper meds! I’ll be thinking of you

I would call your oncologist. Do not hesitate even at night. Someone should be on call. They met want you to get some IV fluids. I was lucky to not be nauseaus at all, which surprised me since I’m a puker. My MO was very proactive. I took zyprexa on chemo day and a couple days after. It worked great on top of the other anti nausea meds. Hope you feel better soon. Sorry Heart
