Hello Jessica Febe, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should first describe what type of leukemia you have. In addition, you should also explain whether you are currently receiving therapy for your leukemia and what therapy you are receiving. If you take certain medications for your nausea, you should also mention what medications you are taking.
Symptoms of nosebleeds can occur due to a very low platelet count in people with leukemia. Platelets can be low because of the disruption of platelet production in the bone marrow due to bone marrow invasion by the cancer cells themselves. Therefore, to overcome this nosebleed problem, leukemia itself must be overcome. Treatment for leukemia can vary, depending on the type of leukemia you have, your general health condition, and the spread of cancer cells to other organs. In general, leukemia treatment consists of:
chemotherapy biological therapy targeted therapy radiation therapy stem cell transplantation. Symptoms of nausea are not actually the main symptom of leukemia, but can occur when people with leukemia undergo therapy. The therapy most known to cause nausea is chemotherapy. To treat nausea in patients receiving chemotherapy, the treating doctor will usually prescribe anti-nausea medications. If you have not received anti-nausea medication, ask the doctor who treats you.
Some things you can do to overcome nausea include:
Drink more fluids, especially if you are vomiting. Drink small amounts, but more often. Avoid drinking with meals. Eat small amounts of food, but more often. Avoid eating foods that are too fatty, too spicy, too sour, and have a strong taste. Avoid lying down after eating Avoid drinking coffee and alcohol. The following articles can be read about leukemia
