Topic: Nausea and Vomiting
2nd Round, Day One....Gem/Cis
Had several very short episodes of queasiness Thursday and Friday, but Saturday, the queasiness was pretty much all day long. Food helped...though what helped the best seemed to be chips, FFs, and burger. Go figure. Still, by late evening, I'd started to dry vomit a few times and felt crappy. Tried some ginger tea which had little effect. So, I finally took a Lorazepam pill and things settled down enough to drop to sleep...slept the entire night. This morning, tummy feels "off", but not too bad yet. I know I've just started this stuff...barely into the rounds, but I'm obsessing over everything right now. The other issue is that ringing in my ears (which I've always had to some degree or other over the years) increased dramatically on Thursday and hasn't gone away. I already had slight hearing loss going into this, so I really am most concerned about my hearing. Will be telling the new oncologist about the ringing. She mentioned something about a hearing test "after" we're done with chemo. ????? Is that the usual way this is done?
