    I wake up early on Chemo days

    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
