re: Chemotherapy and digestion - What the Doctors didn't tell me

my five year old grandson has lymphoblastic lymphoma and has finished his invasive chemo and is now on oral chemo for next 12 months. he is having problems digesting food. he wakes up round 3am and vomits his fever fluctuates and he goes into hospital for monitoring. he''ll throw up bile 2 or 3 times and then he gets released. his tummy is sore and swollen and he is in pain about 830 he throws up again and it is all his undigested food - no fluid. after that he feels better and will lay down and sleep. is this a common side effect of chemo?
