I am sorry to hear that, but think positive and go into it with a fighting attitude. My grandmother just completed 5 weeks of 24/7 chemo by wearing the pump. She also is going through radiation treatments and was getting very very nauseous every day (that was her biggest complaint). Also, food started to taste different, but overall she completed the 5 weeks and is waiting for new scans to be taken in order to check on the tumor size. I would recommend discussing neausea medication with your oncologist during chemo. One very good med for nausea is Zofran, but it is very very expensive. Hope I have been a help and you will be in my prayers and thoughts.

Take care ms
