Day 1 of 9 with no cytotoxics or steroids
Had read about the utility of ginger in food and as a supplement to help out with low grade nausea and general stomach complaints. Kathleen and I picked some up while shopping. Tried the capsules with some ginger snaps in the afternoon, and after a nap, felt much better.
One good thing is that the peripheral neuropathy has not shown up at all recently.
Have an appointment scheduled with Warren on Wednesday, July 11. Will review all these side-effect issues with him then.
Hi, Karl. Don’t know whether you remember, but Mom always used to give us gingerale and saltines when our stomachs were unsettled to combat nausea. Ginger is a well-known nausea suppresent and it tastes great!
