I am sick. I have diaphrea and nausea. I am on Avastin every 3 weeks. I think it might be the flu. What can I take. I was up all last night and today. It is not stopping.

Help please
Linda

    Do you have anti-nausea pills from other chemos?
    If you don't have any good prescription anti-nausea pills, please call your oncology nurse and have one called in to your local pharmacy. I think you can take immodium for the diahrea, although I personally hate that stuff. But it does work. (((Linda))).

    & take your temperature every few hours. If it goes over 101.5 you need to call that in and probably be seen. That's important.

    Thank you thank you.
    I do have some anti-nausea pills. I am going to call my son to go get me some imodium. He doesn't live too far away. (about 20 minutes). I don't have a temperature (thank goodness). And the hearing in one of my ears is stopped up. That is why I was thinking it might be a bug that I have caught.

    If the imodium doesn't work, I am going to call. It has just made me so weak. I have been trying to drink as much as I can.

    Thank you so much. Praying tomorrow is a better day.

    Have you let your ONC/ONC nurse know what going on? I deveoped an ear infection a few weeks ago that took two rounds of antibiotics to eliminate ( good old lower immunity from all that chemo!) Here's hoping that today is a better day for you.
