Hi Everyone- This is my first message. I am just recovering from TRAM flap reconstruction, and I am scheduled to begin chemo (AC) in a week and a half. Really nervous!! I am looking for the best tips you may have for avoiding nausea and mouth sores. Do anti-nausea meds work best if taken before, during, and after treatment? Or just during and after? I also heard from a couple of survivors that eating ice pops during treatment prevents those nasty mouth sores. Does that really work? My dad had chemo a few years ago, and he really suffered, so I am naturally anxious.
