Re: OTC Suggestions for Nausea from Oxaliplatin

Ginger and peppermint tea helped in conjunction with nausea meds. Start doing all this before you start getting nauseated. I't works best if you stay ahead of it.

Re: O/T Need prayers for friend going under the knife.

I'm a praying person who prays the rosary everyday. I will keep him in my rosary today. This being in his neck, sounds like some sort of lymphoma? My sister had Hodgkins disease. If it is, it's usually treatable and curable. We'll pray for that!

Remember that this type of cancer is one of the slowest growing cancers there is, so you have time to do all this. I understand the feel...

When my husband had his pre surgery ct and pet scans, that said that three lymph nodes looked suspicious for cancer. The surgical pathology report showed differently, they were not cancer.
