I am nearly 2 months out of chemo therapy for Breast Cancer, but still feel nauseous all the time. My mouth waters like it would if I was going to vomit, but I don't. The thought of food makes me sick to my stomach and when I do eat, my throat feels like I'm eating glass. Has anyone experienced these syptoms. I am getting little satisfaction from neither my Primary Physician or my Oncologist. They recommend a gastroentologist but I can't believe I am the only person to experience this. I have been unable to return to work due to this continued illness. Anyone have advice for me. None of the anti-nausea medication has worked for me either.

Hi @DENISEAMONEY post chemo nausea can last for some time - not everyone recovers the same and chemo can damage the digestive tract. Have you tried exercising, like mild walks to get blood flow going?
Also, have you reached out to an acupuncturust who has experience in dealing with cancer patients? There is growing support for acupuncture to help with side effects of chemo, like nausea.

I am going to have to go through chemo they say the oral kind. I am having second thoughts about this.
