It has begun

Good evening buddies. So, nausea just ate my day. It started at midday and has just stopped. Luckily, the anti-sickness drugs are keeping everything where it should be. But, my goodness, that was a truly humbling experience. I took to bed (alas, not to sleep) and Adam and Mum are taking good care of me. My good eating intentions have been quickly abandoned in favour of instant mash and salt and vinegar crisps. Hopefully that was the worst of it. We’ll see.

    So sorry Heidi, rest well and hopefully it will lessen. But I thought they gave you some intravenous anti-sickness concoction.

    Love Sokari

    Many many hugs and much solidarity hon.

    On boob trust action, you may have seen this but I found this article about a clinical trial that showed ginger successfully reducing nausea after chemo by up to 40%:

    Looks like you need the right dose (higher doses weren’t as effective interestingly) and that you need to start before the chemo. For next time maybe? Though drinking ginger tea now is unlikely to do you any harm in any case.

    Hope you find something that helps, love, and that today is better. xxxxxxxxx

      Thanks lovely man. Mum has become my very willing housevrouw/slave. She’s doing an awesome job. Adam has turned into Super-Dad/Hubby and is taking no prisoners. I’m feeling very loved. xxx
