Nausea, can't eat today

It 7PM, and thus far today I've been unable to eat due to nausea. I've never had nausea like this: non-acute, began upon awakening and constant all day. Nausea 8/10 all day, when trying to eat worsened.

Any advice?

I'm so sorry to hear that your nausea has worsened. 😢❤️

Actually on that day not just nausea, which went away following day, but also would look at food and now feeling of hunger.

That would be great. I have a feeling this may be a problem that requires chronic management.

I take Zofran 2 or 3 times a day . Every 8 hours. Works very good for me. Your oncologist should prescribe this no problem. They have one you put under your tongue to dissolve so it works fast.

I have also used compazine which can be taken more often. Try one for a week. Take it before meal time.

My tolerance for certain foods is bad. I eat peanut butter. Soup with lots of saltines. I have gotten pasta and cream of wheat. Just go with any cravings you might have. 4 small meals a day.

My issue is I eat something and it’s goes down well then it hits my stomach and I feel stuffed up to my neck. Good b then need not overeat can get

Thanks for your reply. I know what you mean. I hate when that happens. You are eating fine then all of a sudden your stomach feels taught and distended.

What are you taking for nausea? Jimmy started off with Zofran 4 mg and then increased to the 8 mg. He took it so it was always in his system. He tried promethazine but didn't like the Parkinson like shakes it gave him. When the Zofran stopped working on a consistent basis, they switched him to Reglan which he took routinely to keep in his system. I could add Zofran if he needed. Not sure what other options are out there. He also ate several small meals/snacks instead of large ones and included lots of crackers, oatmeal etc to help settle his stomach. Ginger Ale also seemed to help at times or Ginger Tea.

You're so kind to share your experiences. I take zofran 8mg (prescribed daily) but often need more. This is a difficult illness and all of us should be proud fighting it. God bless you.
