Now I can say that I’m no longer on any meds related to my lymphoma. Next time I go to the pharmacy, it will be to have these leftover tablets safely disposed of. Freedom!
That new anti-nausea drug I’ve started taking (aprepitant) has been doing a FANTASTIC job at keeping queasiness at bay so far, but with a rather pronounced side-effect of drowsiness and napping. It just knocks me out! So, on a forced lazy day, what better way to pass whatever time I’m awake than to watch a little Euro 2020?
One of the legendary side effects of chemotherapy is… nausea. Oh, that glorious upheaval and queasiness that leaves you feeling crummy, woozy, uncomfortable, and all-around gross.
They say that when you’re nauseous, the best thing to do is the exact opposite of what you feel like doing: eat. Of course, most food is completely unappealing while nauseous because of taste, smell, texture, whatever. But ya gotta eat. So… soda crackers (or saltines, if you’re so inclined) to the rescue.
