I am new to this club here, newly diagnosed in November. Before the storm comes, I am taking advantage of my time, getting out to enjoy life, and wanted to share a fun experience with you.
I love to Kayak fish. Bought a fishing kayak 5 years ago. All of our camping and vacation trips include the kayak. Motion sickness has always been a problem in the ocean. Usually a good dose of Dramamine does the trick.
I have a always had a goal to catch a Yellowtail in the Kayak. The fishing and weather report for La Jolla, CA looks great, so what the heck! Loaded up on the Dramamine the night before, and took another dose with my Zytiga at 4 am.
Was really hoping the fuzzy head and kinda tired feeling of the Zytiga would also help. But no, it didn't!
Fishing for two hours, and then the old dizzy illness hit. and hit hard! It was fierce and strong. That gut emptying heaving, over and over, trying to throw it all over the side. After the clean up, kept on a fishing. There was no way my I was going to leave this ocean.
It was one of those mornings, when your on the water at day break, with no wind, and the waves were nil. Just the swells, those constant swells, and good fishing.
I fished a total of 7 hours and threw up 5 separate times. All full bore, gut emptying - you guys know that feeling. But the fishing was great! I didn't catch a Yellowtail yet and kept a couple of rockfish for taco's. We are here for another week, so more adventure to come!
Many have said here, take advantage of the times when you feel good. I feel this time is the calm before the storm for me. I will have my first scans next week, then meeting with the Dr. who no doubt will have plans.
Figured there a lot of people on this forum that love to fish, and can relate with this, or will have a good laugh at my adventure!
So, if anyone is wondering if Zytiga helps with seasickness, I say 'NO'!
