I had a really bad bout with nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea last week. Anything I tried to eat or drink came back within 15 minutes. I could not take my nausea meds, and my blood pressure med came back up, as well. I couldn’t even hold down plain water. So I went to emergency and they kept me overnight, got the nausea and vomiting under control, and the trips to the restroom wore off. Before that episode though, I noticed I didn’t feel like I was digesting anything. I felt hungry, yet full—as though whatever I ate sat on my stomach and didn't pass through. They did not suspect any blockage.
Now that I am home, I'm over the nausea (I have Zofran that dissolves under the tongue), but still have that same full stomach feeling. Is there any way to get my stomach back on track? I have been eating a couple of servings of kimchi or sauerkraut every day for the past 3 days to aid digestion, and sipping a little probiotic drink, but my stomach won’t budge.
Any ideas? I am in my "off" week so I have not had the Gemcitibine treatment or the Sutent since the day before the episode.
