Dude, you should read my "Diarrhea and bloating and gas" thread. I just had my 3rd round of chemo. I'm on Capeox. I didn't have any nausea until the 5th and 6th days after my 3rd round of chemo. I was surprised that the nausea didn't come on until the 3rd round. It wasn't too bad, though.
I took three prescription anti-nausea pills at once yesterday evening, after I was fed up with being nauseous all day long and angry that the "suggested" dose of one pill hadn't done anything for me earlier yesterday. The three pills worked great, and I haven't been nauseous since. So today was pretty good. I had my oxaliplatin exactly one week ago and I've been taking the Capecitabine pills since then, although with my diarrhea/cramping/gas side effects, my oncologist told me to take a couple days off from the Capecitabine.
And you know what really helped me feel great last night after straining in vain to poop all day long, and with sore rectal muscles and just a feeling of shittiness? I took a Norco. I've never been a pill popper, much less an opiate pill popper, but I gave myself permission. The Norco made me feel perrrrrrfect
