How To Deal With Nausea And Vomiting When Colon Cancer Chemotherapy?
Good afternoon HealthReplies.com. Continuing my previous discussion: Goodnight HealthReplies.com. I am a patient with a temporary Colostomy. My Colostomy making operation was on October 3, 2019 ago. And, will be scheduled to undergo medical treatment Chemotherapy on 29 October 2019 later with a diagnosis of ca colon. One of the effects of chemotherapy is nausea and diarrhea (although not everyone experiences the same effect because the immune system of each patient will be different, right doctor?). I have a little concern about this, I’m afraid when undergoing chemotherapy or post-chemotherapy I (if … but not easy) experience nausea and want to vomit, how do I deal with it huh doctor? Because it will be painful in my colostomy. Please help me with an explanation, yes, in order to reduce the concern. anxiety that I feel right now, while waiting for ‘H’ Day is not. Previously, I thank you, doctor. A good afternoon.
Good night. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
