Im on FOLFIRI and will finish my 5FU (46hrs) today. First day in the chemo suite I was so nauseous and continued to feel that way all day. Yesterday I felt better with the 5FU. 1st round almost done. My oncologist said if everything goes well ill be doing the HIPEC procedure after 6mos of chemo.
Thank you for taking your time to read my story.

Tell your Onc about your nausea. They can either prescribe something or give you meds prior to your infusion. Ginger is very good at controlling nausea. Ginger snap, ginger ale, ginger root, etc. Keeping food in stomach helps keep nausea away. Thus eat several small meals through out day vs 3 meals a day. I always got an egg & cheese breakfast sandwich on way to chemo.
You will find a wealth of information and support here.

I see Lee is providing you with great info already, and I agree - let your onc know. Don't just suffer through it. And may I add how much I *hate* seeing that you were only 32 at diagnosis? Ugh. Wretched disease. I was 46 at diagnosis, and mom of a just about to turn 5-year-old (who is now 6). I can totally understand the feelings you're going through in being a Mom. It was the people on this support group that gave me the advice, encouragement and hope I needed. We're all brother-and-sisters in arms here. You are not alone.
Keep us posted on how things go for you. I will be praying that your treatment goes really well and is majorly successful.
Hugs and Prayers,
