I never had nausea with folfox, but i did have stomach cramps. Atropine seems to help alot with that. Ask the oncologist about stomach cramp medication. Chemo sucks no matter which one your on. I am doing FOLFIRI and everyday I talk to my wife about quitting. FOLFIRI causes nausea, I vomit at least 3 days out of it. I now have a strain in my abdomen from throwing up like a muscle pull so that hurts. I have 3 rounds left, and I am going to fight my way through it. IT IS HORRIBLE!! The way you feel. It last for at least 5 days, and starts to get better by day 7. I remember FOLFOX, jaw cramp (first bite syndrome), cold sensitivity, neuropathy in hands and legs/feet, hair thinning, stomach cramps that come and go. I am sorry he is going through it. Remember we are taking poison basically. They use this shit back in Nazi Germany, thats how chemo came to be...But its a necessary evil to hopefully get us to that miracle cure and that name we all want, cancer survivor. Stay strong!!
