Chemo. & lack of taste any hope?

I had Chemo. on 4/12. I still am so nauseous and nothing tastes right or good! Is there anything I can do!? Anything at all?? I'd be so grateful for any tips!!

  • My dad said that eating ginger snaps helped is stomach and after he ate a few he could taste other things better. He also liked lemon drops and said they didn't bother his stomach. If this was your first or one of your first rounds of chemo it will take awhile for things to even out. Good luck!!

  • Is it from the chemo Linda or possibly from a med? I know when I was on one particular med diet coke esp was unbearable.
