Mild permanent nausea

Posted by elladee @elladee, May 22 6:26pm

Hi, I’m new to the group and am happy to be here. Since my diagnosis of dcis stage 1 I’ve followed Mayo clinic closely and found their information the most comprehensive and easy to understand.

My question is, I’ve had single mastectomy and reconstruction 8 weeks ago and have since had a mild nauseous feeling continuously. I can’t seem to shake it. My gp doesn’t seem concerned but it’s worrying to me . Am wondering if this is common among patients such as myself.
Thank you for any information regarding this.

@elladee Hello Elladee,

I am sorry to hear of your problem with nausea. Even mild persistent nausea makes eating difficult. Have you lost a lot of weight?

You indicate that you had a mastectomy eight weeks ago. Have you had any other treatments such as chemo or radiation? Here is some information about the stages of DCIS that might be helpful to you, https://www.cancer.net/cancer-types/breast-cancer/stages.

Are there any foods or drinks that help with the feelings of nausea? Have you addressed this problem with your oncologist or just your GP?

Thank you for your reply.
I have lost 6 kilograms, which is ok. But my appetite has changed probably because of the underlying nauseous feeling I have. I’ve not mentioned it to my oncologist only GP.
I feel my immune system is weak atm so I’m taking supplements.

I can certainly appreciate the self-care you are giving yourself with supplements. I would, however, encourage you to at least speak to your oncologist's office. Perhaps the doctor's nurse can help you decide if this is a normal response to the type of cancer and surgery that you have had. They might be able to suggest how to treat nausea if it continues to persist and affect your appetite.

Will you consider a call?
