In the old days, chemo almost always made people feel like they were going to puke – and they usually did. Today, there are a lot of really good anti-nausea drugs available that help. If your chemo drugs make your nauseous, ask your medical team about taking one of these drugs before and during your chemo. It might take a little trial and error to find the drug that does the trick for you!
