1. The anti nausea drug they give you comes in handy.

I found barfing was no big thing. It just came out like water. Carry a beaker for barfing nearby.

This is the one the VA gave me.


The nausea will trail off in time, but keep something with you until you are sure your stomach is better.

Sleep is essential. You will nap several times a day.

I survived with the help earphones, good music and a sleep mask

I used a feeding tube for food and water.

Hydrate! Practice patience. A walking stick or a steady hand helps.

I was getting radiation at the same time as Chemo, so your mileage may vary.

Just handle it as it comes, and you'll do fine.
