    Is it routine to stay nauseous for a week or so after chemo?

    I seem to be on the verge of being sick to my stomach every day. I thought the anti-nausea meds they give me at treatment would take care of that.

      My mom finished Chemo in July. Her nausea wasn’t touched by Zoltan. The Oncologist gave her Compazine which worked better for her. Dr. also told her to take it for a few days after chemo even if she didn’t feel nauseous hoping that she could get ahead of it. It’s trial and error since everyone is different. But there are a number of drugs that you can. Hope you find something that works.

      That was about right for when i was getting chemo. None of the anti-nausea meds worked for me, unfortunately.

      Wishing you better days!

      All chemo drugs are different, and we all react differently to the same drug. I was in a constant state of nausea and vomited every day for 5 weeks. We didn't want you to feel left out.
