Hi, Dee,

Firstly, I must commend you for taking control of your treatments by requesting oxygen. Too many of us see a problem, feel intimidated by the treatments and/or professionals, and then don't speak up. Good on you!

As to nausea, and from what I understand, some people do experience it and, when they do, it often is when the dose and/or area is increased. One thing which you might try to do is to eat several light (easy to digest, non-greasy) meals during the day, instead of a few, heavier meals.

Wishing you a productive discussion with your radiation oncologist!

Hello @elizm – – Thanks! The only thing I regret is NOT talking sooner. Or actually, NOT "acting" sooner — it took me two days! Yes, we all need to learn to speak up and take charge of our own health.

I talked to my radiation oncologist yesterday; he said the nausea is not due to the radiotherapy; however, he did give me a prescription. Thanks for your recommendation on meals, I have started doing that. So far, so good.
