Coping with Nausea

Whether you are undergoing chemotherapy or radiation to treat your illness, you may experience persistent nausea as a side effect. Some days you may not feel like eating at all. Despite these feelings, it is very important for your body to get the nutrients it needs to fight your illness.

Some tips for staying healthy despite nausea include:

  • Ask your doctor about anti-nausea or anti-emetic (prevents vomiting) medications
  • Try snacking throughout the day instead of forcing yourself to eat meals
  • Drink lots of clear fluids to stay hydrated

Coping with Pain

Unfortunately, pain is a persistent problem for many cancer patients. The good news is that there are many ways to manage it. Be sure to tell your doctor about any pain you are experiencing, in as much detail as you can. This will help your doctor identify the cause and fight the best way to fight it.

If you are concerned about becoming dependent on painkillers, be sure to discuss this with your doctor. He or she will be able to inform you about the risks of dependency, which are actually quite low for the average person.

You can also ask about techniques to use alongside medication, such as acupuncture, or meditation. If you need more information, remember that there are many free resources for people coping with cancer pain.
