Nausea

I am in my 5th year after having stage II rectal cancer. I have a nausea problem that doesn't want to go away. I have tried eating differently, having smaller meals more times a day, just munching all the time to mask the feeling. Nothing makes it go away. I am on a few medications, but remember feeling this way before I was diagnosed and on meds for anything. I am about to go back in for an appointment to talk to my doctor about it. Has anyone else had chonic nausea? I am curious if it is just normal with what our bodies have gone through or is it maybe something else. Thanks.

    Kim,

    I tend to get nauseated easier and when I'm hungry, but smaller, more frequent meals seems to do the trick for me.

    You didn't mention how long this has been going on, but by the term "chronic" I guess it's been a while. I'd get to the doc to see if you can get it figured out. I hope you find relief soon.

    Ahoy, Kim -

    First congrats on being a member of the 5 year club!

    As for your chronic nausea - unless you're living on a ship, I would say that it is NOT normal. I would go talk to your doc and be sure s/he knows you have a CRC Hx.

    You know, hormonal changes can cause nausea in some folks. Just food for thought...

    Best regards

    Nope, not saying that... I AM saying that y'all can grow babies in there which is something we guys have yet to figure out... I am also saying that once you're past your "child-bearin' years", you tend to experience another hormonal paradigm shift that messes everything up -and that's something we guys REALLY haven't figured out yet!
