I wake up early on Chemo days so I can eat a huge breakfast and have it mostly digested before Chemo.  This does help me with the nausea. It also helps if I need to lose it that there is not much there to lose.


I am doing Folfiri and it makes me severly nauseated.   Folfox made me have diarrhea and slightly nauseated. 


Best Always,  mike

Shortages are great for business. They justify the high prices pharma is able to charge.
