Aside from losing one’s hair, chemotherapy has other unpleasant side effects. A popular one being nauseous and vomiting.
While we can’t avoid hair loss, there are ways to soothe nausea, and Phoenician Home Care is here to share those with you. Take a look:
- Consult your doctor about nausea medications
Since you’re receiving chemotherapy, you can’t just take any nausea medications. Ask your doctor which ones they recommend. Don’t worry about having to line up in pharmacies. Our Homecare Agency in Phoenix Arizona can handle all of that.
- Avoid warm food
This is good news for cold dessert lovers out there. If you happen to feel queasy, you can snack on your favorite yogurt or ice cream.
- Avoid strong smells
Part of our sense of taste comes from smells. Strong odors can lead to your feeling nauseated, so try avoiding areas in your home that have strong smells like your kitchen, for instance. If you need help with cooking, our Non-Medical Home Care in Phoenix, Arizona can do that for you.
- Eat what you want
Don’t force yourself to eat food that will make your stomach churn. If you’re in the mood for some mac n’ cheese, by all means, go for it. Senior Care services can ensure that you’re only getting the best food in your body, without the need to cook yourself!
