Try to get an appointment with your go. Explain the nausea and ask for anti nausea pills. They make some that melt in your mouth. There are also suppositories and topical meds too.

Broth like chicken or beef, or vegetable. Soups. Simple crackers. Bread. Toast. Simple things. Bananas, rice, applesauce. Gelatin. Ice cream or pop sicles.

Peppermint and ginger teas are good for anti nausea. Ginger snaps.

Chewing gum to keep your mouth moist.

Simple things.

Mashed potatoes. Peas.

What you can keep down.

Peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

3 year ago I had VM, I lost 30 lb, in two years I put back 10lb, and I have to eat healthy if not I got constipated right away, have patience, try to eat healthy, step by step, I was in wheelchair because my legs were very weak, still i have problems to exercise, but I feel better< i learned after this deadly illness as survivor, we have to have patience, no alcohol, no smoke, the last time I saw the neurologist she told me:" you did a wonderful recovery, I don't know what you are doing, but keep doing it" everybody says me the same. good luck and patience. don't rush your body. take care of it, it is the key to improve.

Ask your doctor for fortisips or ensure plus, they are full of vitamins and like a meal in a drink, you can either get milkshake type, juice type or soup type. They will help to put your weight back on if you eat on top. I lost 3 stones in 2 weeks when I was having chemotherapy and they helped me even though iv always found it hard to put on weight x
