Many patients on chemotherapy experience nausea and vomiting, some more severely than others.  Vomiting can also be caused by highly contagious viral infections. Avoid greasy or strong-flavored foods if they make you feel ill. If cooking smells bother you, have someone else cook and stay away from the kitchen.

We’ve included Hydralyte in our Kit. Hydralyte is scientifically formulated to contain the correct balance of glucose and electrolytes for rapid rehydration. Water alone, or sugary drinks are not as effective as Hydralyte, as they do not replace electrolytes which are lost during bouts of vomiting.

Consult you medical team if you are unable to eat due to ongoing nausea, you are unable to take your medications or if there is persistent vomiting that cannot be controlled with antinausea drugs.
