Re: Terminal Cancer
I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad. A cancer diagnosis is heart-rending even when it's caught early.
One thing I would suggest is that you check with his doctors and make sure they're giving him intravenous Zofran BEFORE they give him the chemo. He should also be sent home with anti-nausea pills to take each morning for at least 3-4 days after the chemo, as well as compazine suppositories, if he's able to use them. Some doctors are simply not aggressive enough about treating the nausea. Of course, people react differently to chemotherapy drugs, but it's been my experience that some doctors just don't pay enough attention to the side effects.
