Do you know yet if the cancer in the omentum is from the pancreatic cancer or is it a different ovarian-type cancer? If it’s pancreatic you may get more targeted advice from a pancreatic support group.

It would appear the meds you’ve been prescribed are not keeping the nausea at bay so I would suggest you ask your team for something else.

Hope the results of the tests show good news.

I can only tell you what worked for me before and during chemo. Of course, I'm not a doctor, so keep that in mind. Try brown rice, rotisserie chicken and hard boiled eggs, all with a bit of salt and pepper. There are no grains in this. They are hard to digest. All three of these foods have protein which can help you to feel satiated. Try small amounts, like a quarter cup total and eat a bit every couple of hours.

I would try soup, maybe puree it might be easier to digest. I would stay away from milk.
