For the first time in my life, I have been burping. All week long I have urped my way through conversations, meals, even synagogue. I am guessing this is a chemo side effect although it's not specifically mentioned in the drug pamphlet.
On Friday the burps turned into a queasy tummy -- not precisely nausea. A zofran tablet at 11 AM took care of the daytime queasiness, and another at 6 PM helped me get through Shabbat dinner with friends. A little ativan along the way didn't hurt either.
Today was better, although after coming home from shul I took another zofran and some more ativan a few minutes ago. Now I will drink some ginger ale.
I think this falls under my chemo mantra of minimal side effects, the other parts of course being very effective and well tolerated.
