What good timing - I just popped on to check in. I didn't buy any ginger tea, although I'm sure I could find it here in Dallas. You might check these queasy pops out.
I learned about them in my "chemo class" and the pharmacy @ Baylor carried them. They come in a variety of flavored, including ginger.
Also, just plain ginger snaps or ginger ale can help. I didn't find I needed it much. I bought a whole assortment of queasy pops and only used a few.
They should go over what all you will get with chemo with you. The nurses at Baylor were great - I hope your infusion nurses will be too. They took time to explain everything I was getting and showed me the labels on everything. You'll get fluids because the cisplatin is hard on kidneys.
Take reading materials or other stuff. I was gifted a new iPad, which was great to keep me occupied. Even HBO and Direct tv on demand. Or, don't hesitate to nap.
PS, ironically, I ran into the surgeon who put my port in this morning. My husband was having cataract surgery at the Baylor day surgicenter and Dr. Celinski came out to the waiting room. I was surprised to see him, but they apparently do all kinds of day surgeries there. We had a nice chat.
But, that reminds me of one more thing. I don't know about yours, but my port was kinda deep, so I learned real quickly to make sure every nurse I had knew what size needle worked! Saved getting poked more than once.
